I have been hunting for peaches all over - Without success..I am no fan of canned stuff. But then since the season is all over, i thought of them ...I found 100's of candied 100 other things but No Peaches! Guess, I did lots of grumbling and mumbling, cos how else do i explain the incident which happened y'day evening..
My hubby returns from office and comes and whispers in my ear "I have a surprise for you..Bought u something which am sure U wud luv ". I am all ecstatic..trillion stuff went thro my mind thinking of which of those , which I wanted, was given to me as a surprise! I sure was grinning like a total Idiot! He asked me to close my eyes and placed a cover on my outstretched hands. Hubby - "Tada, open your eyes" . I am totally into the Mills & Boons world now and open my eyes with cinematic expressions ( with slow motion ) in my face. What do I see - I see a shopping Bag! What does it Have - One Can of Peaches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK Will spare all of u with the info and go to the recipe - Peach Custard from my cookbook and which will be my entry for Mansi's AFAM- Peach. Ya, dint like the way it photographed..wanted to tinker it a bit to make it better like Bee ; but no such luck, guess my photography skills no way match for Bee's ;-) ! But it sure tasted good although not such a looker!
Mix the custard powder
and the sugar with a little milk till smooth
Heat the rest of the milk.
Pour onto the mixed custard powder, stirring well.
Bring to the boil stirring continuously for 2 minutes.
Drain the peaches and arrange the peach halves in an ovenproof dish.
Pour the hot custard over the peach halves.
until it covers it well.
Sprinkle the brown sugar on top and bake in a hot oven at 200 degree C (400 degree F) for 15 minutes.
Once out from the oven
spoon it into glasses/cups
Hi Divya - thank you for trying this out. Yes the custard should be thick. Heat it until it comes together with a batter like consistency. Little more thicker than a thick buttermilk. I dint use the juice of the peaches. I drained and placed only the peaches on the baking sheet. I agree its not that sweet - the brown sugar adds to the sweetness in correct proportions. Hope this helps.
