How to make it

  • Thouroughly blend together eggs, sugar, and nutmeg
  • Scald milk and salt
  • slowly add hot milk to egg mixture, blending carefully
  • pour into pie shells OR
  • a 2qt cassorole dish
  • sprinkle top with extra nutmeg if desired
  • AS single baked custard, bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 1 hr
  • For pies, pre heat oven to 475 bake for 5 minutes
  • turn oven down to 425 and continue to bake for 10 mins or until firm
  • cool and serve. Keep in mind that the dustard will continue to bake until cooled. This recipe is equally good using extra large chicken eggs; the difference being texture. Duck eggs make a more silken custard and will be slightly richer.

    When does the vanilla get added?

    Step 9, if I'm doing a single baked custard at 375 degrees, do I really turn it "down" to 425 and continue to bake for 10 min? A little confusing.

    Tasty though thank you.

    Thank-you for your Mana'o on the duck eggs in this recipe.

    Egg Custard was a privilege in my home growing up.

    Hope you and your family have a nice Saturday.
