Spanish Custard (Flan de Leche)

3 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
6 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon anisette, scant
pinch salt
1 pint boiling milk

Boil 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water until brown, then pour the caramel into 6 molds.

Beat eggs, add 2 cups sugar, vanilla, anisette, salt and beat again. Add boiling milk little by little, then strain through cloth or china colander.

Pour mixture into custard cups, put cups in water-filled pan and bake for 30 minutes in 350 oven. Don't let water boil or custard will be filled with holes. Cool in refrigerator.

When ready to serve, press edges of custard with spoon to break away from mold, turn turn upside down. The caramel then tops the custard. Serves 6.
