“This simple custard is great with sliced strawberries, bananas or other sliced fruit for a simple summer desert. The custard recipe was originally printed in Bon Appetit (May 1984) for 2 portions, but is very easy to double or adjust for number of portions you need. Refrigeration time is at least four hours.”
