Hand a friend round tonight, so made some apple crumble with proper HM custard from Jamie Oliver new book (sugar, milk, 8 egg yolks, huge tub of double cream and a vanila pod). Was lovely... if a little expensive. But worth it!

Anyway, got half of the custard left, and dont want to waste it. But I'm not sure what to do with it. Any idea?

  • Slice some bananas into a bowl (or some small bowls) and pour over the custard. Banana custard ... lovely :D

    You need to not stir it too much or it will go all thin and runny. I would do the banana custard thingie or pour it over some drained fruit cocktail.

    could make a pastry case and put some pureed apple in the bottom and cover with the custard, bit like a french flan?
    :)
  • Hummm I'm batting for the banana idea so far. I did pastry last week, took hours, and I cant face it again so soon for doing the apple flan - will remember that idea for another time though. I still have a vanilla pod left so there will be more fresh custard in the house at some point very soon!

    How about, freeze it for a couple of hours, give it a good beat, freeze again, good beat, freeze again, luxury ice-cream!!

    Would that really work? I've actually got an icecream maker with its own freezer unit so this would be no trouble at all. Hummmm.

    Never used an ice-cream maker, but the recipe for custard seems rich enough for ice-cream to me!! Maybe someone "in the know" will be along soon enough to confirm or deny!!

    Ice-cream will be just wonderful with your custard mixture in your ice-cream maker! If you also have some pureed fruit/ground nuts, you can add that too

    Ice cream is usually a custard mixture plus more cream and flavouring. Ice cream will definitely work with your leftover custard. I'd make a trifle ;)
  • Thankyou all, as you can see I did the icecream in the end with some chopped wallnuts and had it with the leftover apple crumble. Very nice, but I probably wont sleep tonight with all that sugar in my veins!
