This sounded too interesting not to post. I have not made this one yet, so I don't know exactly what it tastes like....but I DO have an idea!!! This is a large yield recipe, so will have to use an old fashioned churn with a large canister, or cut the recipe in half for the counter top version. It also calls for "brown sugar corn syurp", but I can't find it here, so use dark corn syrup instead. From Cooking Light.

  6. Temper the egg mixture with 1/3 of the hot milk, stirring constantly.
  7. Pour the tempered eggs into the saucepan with the remaining milk and mix.
