This is a refreshing treat highlighting the fresh berries of summer. The custard is not overly sweet to over-shadow the berries.—Leona Luecking, West Burlington, Iowa
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- Pinch salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups fresh blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
- In a saucepan, heat milk over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pans. Combine egg and sugar in a bowl; stir in a small amount of hot milk. Return all to saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture coats a spoon, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in salt and vanilla. Chill at least 1 hour. Serve over berries. Yield: 6 servings.
