Duck Egg Baked Custard

This rich & creamy custard can also be me made with almond milk for a dairy-free option.

Serves 6.

3 large duck eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
2-1/2 cups very warm milk (120-130 degrees)
ground nutmeg

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt with a wire whisk or fork.  Gradually stir in milk.  Pour into six 6-ounce containers/ custard cups.  Sprinkle with nutmeg.

Place cups in a 13x9-inch pan on oven rack.  Pour very hot water into pan within 1/2 inch of tops of cups.  Bake about 45 minutes.  Remove cups from water and cool about 30 minutes.  Custard can be served warm or chilled in fridge (cover first).
