Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. If this is of concern here are two options:
- Make the recipe using "pasteurized shell eggs," which are perfectly safe to use in a raw state and their use is approved by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
- Cook the eggs, milk and sugar together and adding the remaining ingredients to the well chilled custard base.
To make the custard base:
- Whisk eggs and sugar in a medium bowl.
- Heat the milk in a large saucepan over medium-low heat just until hot, not boiling.
- Add 1 cup of the hot milk to the egg mixture and whisk well.
- Add that mixture to the saucepan and whisk again to combine.
- Cook, stirring constantly, until the custard covers the back of a spoon thickly, about 5 minutes.
- Pour custard through a fine sieve, into a large bowl and let cool about 10 minutes.
- Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
