This is a wonderful garnish for Rote Grütze.
Preparation time: 2 hours
Servings: 2-1/4 cups of sauce, 4 – 6 servings.
- 2 cups whole milk or half and half
- 4 large egg yolks
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Bring milk to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Set aside.
- Whisk egg yolks, sugar and salt together in a medium bowl until the mixture is thick and well-blended.
- Slowly pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly. Return to pan.
- Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, for 15 – 20 minutes, or until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not allow sauce to boil.
- Immediately pour into a glass bowl and stir in the vanilla.
- Cover the top of the sauce with plastic wrap to prevent a skin. Refrigerate until needed.
**This is a thin, pouring sauce that you may also serve in a pitcher. Use chilled, or at room temperature.
