Celebration Caviar Mold


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


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.
