Now I don't know about that yankee statement but I know that anyone who had an abundance of eggs from the henhouse and fresh milk from the cow, this custard was made quite often(I know, I milked the cow)we cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and when it was put in custard cups no flour was used, when put in a pie pan, the flour used. Custard cups were baked in a slow oven with water around them at 300* to 325* We used nutmeg on top. I have used this recipe but cut the sugar. This is a old west recipe too so perhaps some of those southern belles made it out west. Thanks for posting.
