Boiled Custard
« on: December 21, 2010, 10:34:09 PM »
For those who don't know what Boiled Custard is, it's a drink like Egg Nog w/o the spices. We always had it in TN but the people here in SC don't know what it is. I couldn't believe the grocery here doesn't carry it or know what it is.

Boiled Custard

1 qt milk
1/4 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1 egg (beaten)
1 tsp vanilla

Pour milk in pot, add remaining ingredients, stir and cook over low to medium heat til thick.

This is my grandma's recipe. We always make a gallon at a time. You'll notice old recipes don't give much info.

Be sure to stir often til it's thickened.

Thanks, SG... I find that I have fewer lumps if I stir all my dry ingredients together and then add the egg to make a sort of paste... then add the rest of the liquid. I also usually add the vanilla at the very end, after it is thickened.

(I love stirred custard!)
