posted by ramon 01-12-101 10:45 AM


1 liter milk
grated rind of 1 orange and 1 lemon
2 or 3 cinnamon sticks
6 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
5 egg yolks.

Boil milk together with 2 or 3 cinnamon sticks and the grated rind.

In the meantime mix in a bowl the sugar, yolks, cornstarch, and when the milk has boiled for about 5 minutes, let cool a little and add slowly to the bowl through a strainer, beating all the time. Then put on a very low fire, beating so that it does not boil until it thickens. Take out of the heat and cool by putting the pot in cold water, beating the while so it does not form a layer on top. Then refrigerate.

To serve, sprinkle with sugar and burn it with a hot iron or a gas flame. Serve with powdered cinnamon to taste.
