Celebration Caviar Mold
Yield: 25 appetizer servings
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon minced onion
- 1/4 cup dry sherry
- 1 envelope (1 tablespoon) unflavored gelatin
- 4 ounces red or black caviar
- Rye bread or crackers
Instructions:In a food processor or blender, combine the sour cream, cottage-cheese, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and onion. Process only until the mixture is smooth -- about 10 seconds.
Place the sherry in a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the sherry and let it stand for 3 to 4 minutes to soften. Then stir the mixture over low heat until dissolved. Combine the gelatin mixture and sour cream-cottage cheese mixture in a blender or food processor and mix briefly.
Pour into a lightly greased 2-cup mold. Refrigerate until firm. This will take at least 4 hours.
To unmold, loosen the sides with a knife and invert the mold onto a plate. Top with the caviar. Serve with rye bread or crackers.
