Ingredients:  
6 cups milk
6 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions:
Directions:
Place five (5) cups milk in top of double boiler. Heat over boiling water. Add well beaten eggs to the cup of cold milk and 3/4 cup sugar. Stir into hot milk until well blended. Stir frequently as custard cooks to prevent lumping. It should simmer (not boil) until it thickens enough to form a coating on the spoon.
Frequent stirring and temperature just below boiling will keep custard from curdling yet cook the egg yolk.

Remove from heat and cool. I strain to make very smooth.
Chill and add vanilla.
