Makes 8 (1/2 cup) Servings
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Gently heat cream in a heavy deep sauce pan until barely frothing around edges. Gradually whisk in all-purpose flour and salt until well blended and smooth.
Add next 4 ingredients, whisking constantly for 12-20 min. on med/low heat until custard thickens. Remove from heat and stir in 1 Tbs. good quality vanilla.
Remove from heat when adequately thickened and set in a cool place. Continue to whisk every few minutes to let steam heat release. When custard is “set” – serve immediately by spooning into ½ cup ramekins and garnishing with dollop of fresh whipped cream, grated nutmeg, and mint sprig.
