DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium, heavy-bottom saucepan, combine apples, Crispin, Spartan or Empire Apples can be used, sugar, cinnamon lemon rind and nutmeg.
  • Cook over medium heat, until apples softened, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes. Spread this mixture into six, 6 ounce heatproof ramekins, and chill.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks with sugar.
  • In the saucepan that you used for the apples, heat cream, until just before boiling, scraping down the apple bits and spices on the pan into the cream mixture.
  • Whisking constantly, pour in the egg mixture, and continue stirring until thickened, about 20 minutes.
  • Do not let it boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • Strain evenly onto the chilled apple mixture in each ramekin, and let cool.
  • Let cool overnight.
  • At least 1 hour before serving, and up to 1 day ahead, sprinkle custards with brown sugar.
  • Broil for 1 to 2 minutes until sugar melts and colours.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
