"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
2 20 ounce cans of pineapple chunks in heavy syrup, drained
1 POUND package of miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 pounds red seedless grapes, sliced in half

Directions:
Directions:
Cook milk, egg yolks, dry mustard and salt to custard stage. It will coat the spoon. I have found that cooking it in the microwave on high power for 2 1/2 minutes should do it. Stir after 1 minute and 2 minutes. Do not let it boil.

When the custard has cooled add the lemon juice and stir it in and then add the whipped cream and stir all together.

Pour this mixture over the pineapple, grapes, marshmallows and almonds and mix very well. Cover with Saran Wrap and foil and put in refrigerator overnight. Stir well before serving.

Be sure to use a LARGE bowl to make this so you can mix it well and then I put it in a smaller bowl to cover and put in refrigerator overnight.
