1/3 c. sugar

Directions:
Start the oven at about 350...depending on your oven.

Place the milk in a sauce pan, and heat over medium heat to scalding (not quite boiling).

While the milk is heating, beat the eggs slightly in a medium sized bowl. Mix in the sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour the scalding milk into the egg mixture, stirring slowly.

Pour into 6 custard cups, and sprinkle a little nutmeg over the top. Set the custard cups in a large shallow pan of water. Bake until a knife stuck in the center of the custard comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes.

Serve warm or cold.

Personal Notes:
Often, when Joni, Sal, Danny and I (Rhonda) were growing up, we would bike over or ride with dad to grandma Olga's house, and thought it was quite a treat when she made us homemade custard. She served it in green Depression sherbert cups which I now have, and which I use for special occasions with the green Depression wine goblets which aunt Janice gave me for my wedding shower. Grandpa and grandma used to milk cows and I vividly remember the smell of unpastuerized fresh milk in their entryway...but that smell was happily masked by the smell of baking custard!
