3 lg Eggs
1/8 ts Salt
3/4 c Sugar
1/4 ts Vanilla
1 ts nutmeg; Freshly grated
1 1/2 c milk

Original recipe makes 1



In a saucepan bring the milk and the cream just to a boil. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, the sugar, the nutmeg, the salt, and the vanilla, whisk 1/2 cup of the milk mixture into the egg mixture, and whisk the mixture into the remaining milk mixture. Cook the custard over moderate heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spatula, until it registers 175F. on a candy thermometer. Transfer the custard to a metal bowl set in a larger bowl of ice and cold water and stir it until it is cold. Freeze the custard in an ice-cream freezer according to the manufacturers instructions. Makes about 1 quart. Gourmet November 1990
