Lemon Blueberry Créme Brùlée

By Anthony Salemme, chef

Serves 6

1 14 ounce can sweet and condensed milk

14 ounces whole milk (just re-fill the can to measure your milk)

2 teaspoons lemon zest

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 eggs

2 egg yolks

1-pint blueberries

½ cup sugar (for the topping)

Pre heat your oven to 350F. Spray 6 8-ounce ramekins and set into a roasting pan.

In a bowl mix together the milks, eggs, lemon zest and vanilla.

Divide the custard into the 6 ramekins and distribute the blueberries equally on top of the custard mixture. Add hot water to the baking pan until it reaches about 2/3 the way up the ramekins.

Bake 35 – 40 minutes until the custard is set in the middle. It should be slightly jiggly.

Remove the ramekins from the roasting pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.

Remove the creme brulee from the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to browning the sugar on top.

Divide the remaining 1/2 cup sugar equally among the 6 dishes and spread evenly on top.

Using a torch, melt the sugar and form a crispy top. Allow the creme brulee to sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.
