I made some yesterday.  Like the kind my grandma used to make.  I loved her custard, warm and yummy with nutmeg.  Still among my top 5 favorite desserts, along with flan, tiramasu, chocolate cake with cream cheese icing and chocolate mousse.  Don't think my custard is anywhere near as yummy as my grandmother's so I am going to be on the hunt for the secret to delicious custard.  Any suggestions?

And, I decided to also hunt for the same custard dishes she used when I was little.  They were brown with a turquoise interior.  I searched Etsy and couldn't come up with anything...will have to keep looking.  BUT, I did find these from T-Party Antiques:

Vintage Aqua Green Pottery Custard Cups with an Embossed Basket Weave Pattern

Aren't they so sweet? Love the color and texture...!

And, had to share this amazing vessel I found among my Etsy search yesterday:

Gold Point Vessel

from the shop: up in the air somewhere

I am in love........

Have a great weekend, everyone!
