"BIRD'S© is the original custard brand, established in 1837 and loved by generations ever since. Bird's Custard is made and served in millions of homes where proper custard is at the heart of a good pud! Suitable for Vegetarians."
Ingredients include cornflour, salt, vanilla, color (annatto).
There are directions for "ON THE HOB" (stovetop), and the microwave. I chose the microwave. You should always cover your custard in the microwave:
This is a pudding type of custard, not the watery junket type. Out of the microwave, it's like hot vanilla pudding, and will be thicker the longer it cools. I haven't tried the stovetop method, but I expect like all puddings, it's best out of the pot, with the crusty scrapings.
