TOTAL TIME:
Prep: 25 min. + cooling Cook: 10 min. + releasing

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup coconut milk or whole milk
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 large eggs plus 1 large egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • Dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon dark rum, optional

Directions

In a small heavy saucepan, spread sugar; cook, without stirring, over medium-low heat until it begins to melt. Gently drag melted sugar to center of pan so sugar melts evenly. Cook, stirring constantly, until melted sugar turns a deep amber color, about 2 minutes. Immediately remove from heat and carefully stir in 1 tablespoon hot water. Quickly pour into hot sterilized 4-ounce jars.
In a small saucepan, heat coconut milk and whole milk until bubbles form around sides of pan; remove from heat. In a large bowl, whisk condensed milk, eggs, egg yolk and salt until blended but not foamy. Slowly stir in hot milk; stir in vanilla and, if desired, rum. Strain through a fine sieve. Pour egg mixture into prepared jars. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
Add remaining hot water to 6-qt. electric pressure cooker, and place trivet insert in the bottom. Place jars on trivet, offset-stacking as needed. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 8 minutes.
When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions. Cool jars 30 minutes at room temperature. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Run a knife around sides of jars; invert flans onto dessert plates. Yield: 6 servings.
