Boiled Custard

  • 7 eggs
  • 1 quart milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Flavoring
  • 2 heaping Tbsps sugar
Beat the eggs very light, separating and setting aside 2 egg whites. Mix the eggs gradually with milk and 1/2 cup sugar. Boil in a dish set into another of boiling water. Add flavoring. As soon as it comes to the boiling point, remove it or it will be liable to curdle and become lumpy. Whip the 2 egg whites that were set aside and take a deep breath, adding 2 heaping Tbsps of sugar. When custard is cold, heap this mixture on top. If in cups, put a strawberry or a bit of red jelly on each. Set aside in a cold place until ready to serve.
