One of my favourite desserts for as long as I can remember is creme brulee. This year I have been experimenting with creme brulee quite a bit. I tried a delicious summer peach brulee this past August but didn’t get the measurements right, or used to much peach – which added to much liquid and my custard didn’t set. Great flavour though!
It’s important to note when you freely add things to the custard it can easily change the consistency and not set up. And you can over cook the custard (trust me). I tried this pumpkin recipe 3-4 times before I got the measurements right. It’s a delicious option for your holiday meal and feels light when you are eating it after finishing a big meal.
The canning jars are the perfect vessel for brulees, but please be careful when torching your sugar…getting to close to the edge of the glass can cause it to break! While I have admittedly never broke a custard dish from torching, my husband, a former and non practicing fire fighter has broken one of the glasses. It happens and it gets tossed.
