Now that our nest is empty, Hubby and I are having trouble using up a gallon of milk. To be honest, I’ve started buying half gallons and even with half gallons, I have to be intentional in my cooking so that doesn’t spoil.
Today I used up a bit of milk making a real favorite of Hubby’s, Amish Vanilla Pudding.
3 1/2 c milk scalded
3/4 c sugar
1/3 c cornstarch
1 T butter
1 t vanilla
2 egg seperated
1/2 c milk
Make a thickening with the dry ingredients, beaten egg yolks and the 1/2 cup cold milk. Pour the mixture into the milk until it thickens. Add vanilla and butter. Beat the egg whites (I do it until they are stiff to make it fluffy) stir it into the pudding. The egg whites actually don’t dissolve into the pudding when they are beaten until stiff. That’s the way Hubby likes it.
It does burn easily so you really need to tend to the pot.
It’s extra good served with the vanilla wafer cookies.
