Preparation

Place 1 qt of water in a pot and bring it to a boil. Add chicken bones and boil gently until half the broth evaporates.

Grind the almonds and pour the broth over them. Let them soak a few minutes. Chop all in a food processor. Strain the mixture through a cheese cloth.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 250ºC

Take the breast of a chicken that was killed the night before and put it on a spit. Roast until half done 10-15 minutes. Remove it from the spit and grind it. Add it to the almond and strain it though a strainer which is large enough for the meat to pass through it. Add sugar to taste. When it thickens cook a couple of minutes more and remove from the heat.


Place the ingredients for the sauce in a food processor and grind. Cook 5 minutes until done. Add it to the blancmange.

Serve this in bowls and sprinkle sugar mixed with cinnamon on top.
