RECIPE: Grandma Mary's Boiled Custard Beverage

1 gallon whole milk
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
15 egg yolks
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix sugar with a little milk. Add egg yolks. Add cold milk. Cook in double boiler (I used a regular teflon coated dutch oven). Stir often. Cook about 45 minutes-until it coats the spoon.

Strain when cool. Add 2 tsp. vanilla, or to taste. May add a little yellow food coloring.

Serve with lots of sweetened REAL whipped cream.

(I serve mine in a punch bowl, that I sit down in an ice bath inside a larger bowl, with the whipped cream floating on top).
