Daube is a classic French stew traditionally made with beef, red wine, vegetables, and seasonings. Daube Glace is a dish made with the stew chilled between layers of jellied consommé. Traditionally it's pretty labor intensive, but this is a tasty imitation. Served on crusty French bread with mayonnaise, it makes an upscale and delicious New Orleans po-boy sandwich.

  4. Pour half of the mixture into a ring mold and refrigerate, covered, until set (3 hours).
  5. Soften liverwurst with a little of the wine and some of the remaining consommé mixture, mixing until well blended (a food processor works well for this); then spread the sausage over the jellied consommé layer.

  7. Refrigerate until final layer is set (5 hours).
