– George Bernard Shaw
what would a perfect cozy weekend be without a warm and heavenly dessert to savor by the fire?
my culinary heroes, sunday suppers, have the most mouth watering vanilla pudding recipe that i am excited to attempt. and for my fellow dometic-godesses-in-training, i want to share this delightful dish with you too!
1 1/3 cup sugar
10 tablespoons cornstarch
8 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits
4 whole vanilla beans or 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
~ For Candied Kumquats ~
8 cups fresh kumquats, about 2 lbs.
2 cup water
4 cups plus 4 tablespoons sugar
~ Directions ~
Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a heavy medium saucepan, then whisk in milk, cream and vanilla.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking frequently, then boil, whisking, 1 minute. Remove from heat and whisk in butter.
Divide among glasses and chill, uncovered, until cold, at least 1 1/2 hours.
Thinly slice kumquats crosswise with a sharp knife, discarding seeds.
Bring water and 2 cups sugar to a boil in a 2-quart heavy saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved, then simmer syrup, uncovered, 8-10 minutes.
Stir in kumquats and simmer gently 15-20 minutes.
Let stand at room temperature.
