Prepare a collar for 6-inch souffle dish by folding a long piece of foil
into thirds. Brush smooth side of foil with oil & wrap oiled side around
souffle dish, extending 3 inches above top of dish. In medium saucepan,
beat egg yolks till light & fluffy, gradually add 1 cup sugar & beat till
smooth. Add lemon juice, rind & salt. Stir over low heat until mixture
thickens stirring constantly. Remove from heat to cool. Dissolve gelatin in
custard cup with water or rum. Place cup in shallow pan of simmering water.
When gelatin has melted, add it to egg mixture, beat well. Beat egg whites
until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, a tablespoon at a
time, until stiff peaks form. Fold into cooled citrus mixture. Beat cream
until stiff. Cream should be the same texture as the citrus mixture. Set
aside 1/2 cup of beaten cream as garnish. Fold the remaining cream into the
citrus mixture. Pour blended mixture into souffle dish & refrigerate
overnight or put in freezer for 1-2 hours until set. To serve, remove
collar from dish. Decorate sides of souffle with ground nuts. Pipe rosettes
of whipped cream on top & place candied violets in center of each. You may
wish to garnish by using thin slices of lemon, well drained & rolled in
sugar, slit halfway through & twisted.
