Berries in Custard Sauce

This is a refreshing treat highlighting the fresh berries of summer. The custard is not overly sweet to over-shadow the berries.


6 servings


1 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons granulated (white) sugar
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups fresh blueberries, raspberries and strawberries


In a saucepan, scald milk. 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.
