Just in case Aunt Pit didn't include the details of using powdered gelatin, here they are:
Sprinkle gelatin on cold liquid.
Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
Add warm liquid or heat gently.
Stir until dissolved.

soak 1 envelope knox geletine in 1/2 cup cold water

melt 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate in 4 tablespoon boiling water

then add 3/4 cup sugar

& 3/4 cup boiling water

& boil 5 minutes

remove from fire

add geletine

Let cool till it starts to thicken

add 1 tea s. vanilla

& 4 table s. cold water

add 3 eggs whites well beaten.

Aunt Pit wasn't afraid to use raw eggs. If you are worried about salmonella, substitute pasteurized or powdered eggs.
