Pumpkin Custard

Custard makes a tasty desert served in ramekins or on a plate. Be mindful that custard requires slow cooking and gentle heat in order to prevent curdling. Take special care in following the instructions for mixing in the eggs as well. If the eggs are introduced to the heated mixture too abruptly, they will cook before being completely mixed.
