Raspberry Custard

I have noted that our raspberry bushes are really taking off. The perimeter of our deck is blooming with raspberries, and I cannot express enough how I love walking out there with my kids and picking fresh raspberries in the morning or evening hours. We were able to pick yet another large bowl of raspberries this past weekend (and last night for that matter), and instead of making another batch of raspberry syrup, I decided to make a raspberry custard. My kids just loved the creme brulee I made back in February, that I thought it was time to bring out the ramekins, and make some really simply dessert. These were super delicious, and refreshing, that I just can’t get enough of fresh raspberries!

Raspberry Custard Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of fresh raspberries, washed, and strained to dry
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1/3 cup of white sugar
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup of lemonade
  • 1/2 cup of strawberry jam

Begin by getting out your blender, and combine the milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour, and mix thoroughly at high speed for 60 seconds. Add this mixture to your saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring from time to time, until it comes to a boil. You will notice that it will really begin to thicken up. Set this aside and let cool.

Next, add your raspberries, cornstarch, lemonade, and jam to another saucepan, and mix well, cooking over medium heat until it becomes to thicken, and break down. Set this aside and let cool.

Gather your ramekins. Once the mixtures have cooled, pour the custard half way into each ramekin. You should have enough to fill eight ramekins. Add the cooled berry mixture to the top of each ramekin. Place on a baking tray and let set in the refrigerator for an hour before serving. Really refreshing, and a really nice texture from the custard.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
