Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 7 min.
Apple confectioner's custard : Photo of step #1
Pour 250 ml apple juice into a saucepan on medium heat. Add the contents of ½ vanilla pod (not essential, but the apple and vanilla flavours go well together).

Cover and bring up to simmer, then turn off the heat. Do not let it boil, as this destroys the apple flavour. Leave the lid on.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Put the pan back on low heat and allow the custard to thicken while stirring constantly with a whisk.

The custard is ready when it is about as thick as mayonnaise.

Stage 7

When finished, cream is very hot, if you want to use it immediately you should cool it.

The easier solution is to put it in the fridge, but it's very long.

The best way is to proceed as chefs, and spread it on a plastic film (to protect from the air) then put it in the fridge.

Stage 8
This short video show you how to proceed to cool your apple confectioner's custard.

Remarks

Use the most "apply" juice you can find (from green apples, for example); this will make your custard all the more delicious.
