CUSTARD (7-31-04)  8-7-04 Top of page

6 eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cups milk

Thouroughly mix eggs, sugar and salt. Heat milk in microwave until quite warm. Mix milk into egg mixture. Pour into casserole. Bake in hot oven 475° or 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 425° and bake 10 more minutes or until knife inserted in middle comes out clean.

Tips, Hints and Helps: for how to keep custard from getting too watery on the bottom: Use whole milk, not skim. Do not overbake. Put custard into a pan of water in the oven. Also could substitute Evaporated milk for part of the milk or use half and half instead of milk. Use large eggs, or extra egg yolks. 8-7-04

Requested Fruit Dip with Almond Extract and no cream cheese. Didn't find. 8-7-04

FRUIT DIP 8-7-04
Printed from COOKS.COM

1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
1 c. cold milk
1 c. (8 oz.) sour cream
2 to 3 tbsp. Amaretto (to taste)
Fresh fruit to dip

Beat pudding, milk, sour cream and Amaretto (or almond extract) about 2 minutes. Refrigerate. Serve as dip for fruit.


First, pick your tomato. Roma or other plum tomatoes are good choices, since they are the meatiest, least watery varieties.

Now you'll need several days of hot sunshine, low humidity, and good air circulation.

Begin by halving the fruits and placing them skin-side down on a clean plastic or nylon framed screen. Shepherd's suggests dipping the tomatoes in a solution of half water and half vinegar, and emphasizes leaving room for airflow between the pieces. Don't use metal screens as they may react with the tomato acid.

Cover the trays with cheesecloth to keep off bugs and dust, bring the trays in each night, and return them outdoors after the dew has dried and the sun is bright. An electric food dryer/dehydrator set at 120F (48.8C) for 24 hours yields similar results.
