"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Jackie McCrary


2 1/2 cups milk
1 or 2 egg yolks (I use 2 usually)
1/2 cup sugar (I reduce sugar to about 1/3 cup)
pinch salt
2 heaping tbsp. cornstarch
vanilla to taste
spoonful of butter

Put 2 cups of milk, the sugar and salt in a heavy pan. DO NOT STIR!
Turn on heat. Quickly combine the 1/2 cup milk, beaten egg yolk and cornstarch until smooth.
When milk/sugar mixture comes to a rolling boil, remove from heat, and while stirring, pour in cornstarch mixture. It will thicken immediately and be very smooth.
Return to heat; stir and cook 1 minute.
Take off and stir in vanilla and butter.

Chocolate pudding: To make chocolate pudding, just add 1 heaping tbsp. (or more) cocoa to sugar before adding milk.

From my friend, Doris Maiden.
