      This was excellent pudding. I don't have a dbl boiler, but constant stirring over medium heat was fine. If I made it again, I would leave out or reduce salt and reduce sugar to 1/2 cup. It was a bit sweet and I could taste the salt. My personal preferences, so I still gave 5 stars. The pudding is creamy and smooth. I used it to fill my cream puffs and they were excellent!

      Superb! Took other reviewers advice and reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup and egg yolks to 2. I also used 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. I didn't use a double boiler either. So, so good! And super easy. Can't believe I've never made homemade pudding before. Thanks for sharing.

      Super-dooper pudding. I mix the sugar (1/3 cup) with the salt and cornstarch till blended. Then add a little of the milk to make a smooth mixture. Proceed with the rest of the milk, and stir with a spatula to cover more area while stirring. After the mixture thickens, temper the egg yolks with a little of the hot milk mixture. Add tempered yolks back into the pot, Stir like crazy, letting the pudding boil for at least a minute to cook the eats and prevent it from breaking down. Enjoy. Thanks for a great pudding recipe :)
