GAPS Legal Custard Dessert
Russian custard is a delicious desert or afternoon snack. It is rich, and just sweet enough. You can whip it up in just a few minutes, and it is easy to double or triple to feed another (or more for yourself).
Russian custard is just two ingredients: raw egg yolks and honey. Don't let the raw egg yolk stop you! The texture and taste of the custard are very different than that of a raw egg yolk. I've had multiple people express their pleasant surprise at how much they like it (despite being reluctant to try it because of the egg yolks). So give it a try—it just might become a favorite of yours!
For people on GAPS, this recipe is legal as early as Intro Stage 2
Russian Custard Recipe
Ingredients for Russian Custard:
1/2 - 1 tsp Honey
*As per the usual warning, eating undercooked or raw eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
You can multiply this recipe for as many servings as you want. The above ratio is for one serving.
Directions for Russian Custard:
Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Place the yolks in a separate bowl.
Add honey to the egg yolks. I find 1/2 tsp of honey to be plenty and very sweet. You can add more if you need it. Or less.
Beat the egg yolks with a whisk until they are thick and change color. They should look much lighter, with a little white undertone. This takes about five minutes. A fork does not work well for whisking!
Serve in a small bowl for a delicious dessert or mid-afternoon snack.
This recipe was adapted from the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Book by Dr. Natasha Campbell. It is GAPS Legal on Stage 2 as long as you're not avoiding honey.
