Ginger Tea Pumpkin Custard

I created this recipe when I was first attending photography school. I realized I didn't have any of my usual spices, so out came the ginger tea. The result was wonderful and subtle. Even though I missed my kitchen at home, it was nice to have this comforting pumpkin custard. —Rhonda Adkins, Great Falls, Montana
