Cut the fat and increase the merriment with this holiday favourite by Chef Jo Lusted.
Makes 2 litres
6 cups skim milk
1 tbsp cornstarch
4 large eggs
½ cup egg whites
3/4 cup liquid honey
1/4 tsp nutmeg (plus additional for garnish)
1 vanilla bean, cut in ½ lengthwise
In a saucepan whisk together ¼ cup milk with cornstarch. Add eggs, egg whites, honey and nutmeg and whisk until smooth. Whisk in milk, reserving 1 cup, and vanilla bean; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Do not boil. Allow to simmer, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 8 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in reserved milk to stop the cooking. Remove vanilla bean, transfer to a sealable container and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.
Served chilled, garnish with nutmeg.
