Boiled Custard

Sitting here in what I refer to as Yankeeland after the most recent snow storm I'm brought to mind of this way to warm the soul. This is a terrific winter beverage smooth and creamy perfect for sipping.  One can also substitute rum or almond flavoring for the vanilla extract. Rember when you'd drink melted vanilla ice cream, boiled custard is kinda like that.
                             Prep time: 4 minutes   Cooking time: 60 minutes   Serves: 8    
1 quart Milk
4 cup Egg Yolks (Beaten)
1/2 cup Sugar
2 tablespoon allpurpose flour
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1: In a 2 quart saucepan, scald milk.
2: In another saucepan, combine yolks, sugar, flour, and 1 cup of hot milk.
3: Mix well.
4: Slowly add remaining milk and stir constantly over medium heat 'til thickened. (about 20-25 minutes)
5:Chill overnight.
