1 tsp Vanilla



In a large heavy saucepan combine the egg yolks, milk, and sugar.  Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture just coats a metal spoon.  Remove from heat.  Place the pan in a sink or bowl of ice water and stir for 2 minutes.  Stir in whipping cream, and vanilla.  Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.  To serve,sprinkle each serving with nutmeg.

Fruit Punch:

1 (32-oz.) can pineapple juice

1 1/3 c. sugar

2 pkgs. Kool-Aid

Water to completely fill jug



Mix pineapple juice, Kool-Aid, sugar, and water.  Chill in freezer until slushy, stirring frequently.  For parties and showers, match your Kool-Aid colors to your color scheme.

Ginger Lemonade:

3 cups sugar

16 cups (4 quarts) water

12 to 14 slices gingerroot , (about 2-inch piece)

4 cups fresh lemon juice (24 lemons)

2 lemons, sliced



1. Mix sugar, water and gingerroot in 8-quart Dutch oven. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. Cool 15 minutes. Remove gingerroot.

2. Pour sugar mixture into pitcher or large glass or plastic container. Stir in lemon juice. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until chilled.

3. Serve lemonade over ice with lemon slices.



Peeling fresh gingerroot is easy; just scrape the skin off using the rounded tip of a spoon.

Make extra lemonade, and use it to make ice cubes. Pour lemonade over lemonade ice cubes, and the flavor won't dilute as the ice melts.
