Yay! My first Pinterest to Plate post! I am so excited to have a place to document this series, where I try recipes and share my experience cooking them right here on Monarch by JR.
We all pin and re-pin tons of delicious and beautiful looking recipes, but how often do we put them to the test? Well, I am that person who will actually cook ‘dinner for one,’ just to try a recipe I have pinned. There is one caveat – all recipes featured will be simple, easy and perfect for a quick afterwork meal, that tastes like it look HOURS to make. Some featured recipes I have tried, tested and gobbled up many times and love. Others will be . Now, let’s get to it!
I’ve tried this Blueberries with Custard Sauce recipe by Food & Wine three times, and the third came out the best. The first time, I tried to get creative and use almond milk. Not a good idea, although the flavor was great. The second time, I didn’t like the consistency, as I left the mixture over the heat a little longer than I should have. When the recipes says, “until slightly thickened,” they MEAN IT. The third time was perfect, plus I love using my Pluck (egg separator)! The only other note to mention is to strain well and, push the liquid through the strainer, if necessary. Remember, this is not a custard, it is a custard sauce, so don’t expect it to be even slightly congealed.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 3 large egg yolks
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup blueberries
Check out the recipe here! Let me know if you try it, I’d love to hear your thoughts! 🙂
