Fresh picked strawberries and white chocolate custard


The Strawberry farm at the top of Eaglehawk neck hill has been open this week to pick your own strawberries for $10/ kilo. I served them with a warm easy white chocolate custard.

1  1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup thickened cream
4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornflour
1/3 cup caster sugar
150 grams white chocolate

Combine milk and cream in a small saucepan. Put over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until hot with out boiling. Remove saucepan from heat.

Whisk egg yolks, cornflour and sugar in a bowl until well combined.  Pour hot milk mixture over egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly.

Return mixture to saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 15 to 20 minutes or until custard thickens and coats the back of a metal spoon, DO NOT boil,  add white chocolate and stir over heat until smooth
