       Title: MAPLE CUSTARDS
  Categories: Desserts, Ew
       Yield: 4 servings
  
     1/2 c  Pure maple syrup*, plus
       4 t  For topping
     3/4 c  Skim milk
     2/3 c  Evaporated skim milk
       2 lg Eggs
       2 lg Egg yolks
  
   *for the richest flavor, use syrup graded “Dark Amber”
   In a saucepan over high heat, bring 1/2 c maple syrup to a boil. Cook until
   thickened and reduced to about 1/4 c, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low;
   pour in skim milk and evaporated skim milk. Stir until the syrup has
   blended
   with the milk. Remove from the heat.  In a mixing bowl, lightly whisk eggs
   and egg yolks until combined.  Gradually whisk the hot milk mixture into
   the
   eggs. Skim off any foam and pour the mixture into four 6 oz custard cups or
   ramekins.  Preheat over to 350 degrees. Place the filled custard cups in a
   shallow baking dish and add enough hot water to come 2/3’s of the way up
   the
   sides of the cups.  Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in
   the center of a custard comes out clean.  Serve the custards warm or
   chilled,
   with 1 t of the remaining maple syrup drizzled over each.
