Homemade custard

Jan made custard from scatch. The free range eggs from our hens are so yellow that it looks like there's colouring in the custard.

500ml milk ( nice to use 50ml of cream too)
1 vanilla pod - split
4 eggs yolks only
2 level teaspoons of Cornflour
2 heaped tablespoons sugar

Simmer vanilla pod in the milk. Remove the pod once hot. Beat cornflour, eggs and sugar until smooth. Add the milk slowly to the eggs stirring as you go. Return to pan over low heat and stir until thickened.
Yum!

It went over nutmeg and cinnamon stewed apples.
