HFG tip

  • Save egg whites for future use to make meringue or for glazing.
  • If storing custard, keep vanilla pod in custard until ready to serve to allow the vanilla flavour to develop.
  • To make the vanilla custard in the microwave, heat milk for 1 1/2 minutes on full power in a microwave-proof bowl. Prepare as in step 2, returning the mix to a microwave bowl. Heat on high for 3 minutes, whisking every 30 seconds.
