Tomato Ice Salad

Put a quart can of tomatoes in a saucepan over the fire with half an onion, a slice of green pepper, if convenient, three cloves, two bay leaves, a sprig of parsley, a teaspoonful of sugar, and pepper and salt to taste. Cook until the onion is tender--about ten minutes--remove from the fire, press through a sieve fine enough to retain the seeds. When cold freeze as water-ice and mould--a melon mould is very pretty for it--pack in salt and ice in the usual way; turn it out in a nest of crisp young lettuce and serve with a mayonnaise dressing in a sauceboat
