• Pumpkin Custard

    From Metagenics 2008

    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup Agave Nectar
    • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin
    • 1 cup coconut milk or evaporated milk
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • hot water

    Butter a shallow 1 1/2 quart baking dish.  In a medium mixing bowl, mix together eggs, Agave, and pumpkin.  Slowly mix in coconut milk.

    In a separate medium bowl, mix the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and salt.  Add liquid mixture to the spice mixture and pour into the prepared baking dish.

    Set dish in a large baking pan and add hot water to a depth of about 1 inch.  It should come about halfway up the side of the inner baking dish.   Bake for about 50 minutes at 325 degrees or until custard is set and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

    Cool completely before serving.
