Recipe by Derf
This makes a luscious light dessert, a change from all the heavy dishes over the holidays. Looks wonderful in a stemmed glass. Any fresh fruit can be used.

Really good - you need to add the hot milk to the egg/sugar mixture very slowly in order to ensure nothing cooks, and the window between "thickened" and "overcooked and slightly grainy" is very short, but the recipe works beautifully.
- kiwi, sliced
- seedless grapes
- 2 cups skim milk
- 3 eggs
- 3 egg whites
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 dash salt

- Scald milk in a large saucepan over medium heat (do not allow milk to boil), set aside.
- Combine eggs, egg whites, and sugar in a medium bowl, beat with a wire whisk until blended.
- Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot milk into egg mixture; add to remaining hot milk, stirring constantly.
- Cook stirring constantly, over low heat until mixture thickens and coats a metal spoon, about 30 minutes.
- Immediately pour sauce into a large bowl, stir with a wire whisk until cool.
- Stir in vanilla and salt, cover and chill 2 hours.
- Serve over fresh fruit.
