Chill thoroughly. Garnish with sieved, hard-cooked egg yolks, if desired.

  1. This reminds me of my grandma so much. I used to help her make this the day before Christmas Eve. She served it with Oyster Stew. I’ve made this for our very good friends for the past four years. Since I never did mature into liking Oyster VB Stew I serve it with Crab Stew instead. Thank you for the memories 🎄
