  Milk 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Pure vanilla extract 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

Blend together eggs, sugar and salt in a large saucepan; gradually stir in milk.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and just coats a metal spoon, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cool quickly by setting pan in a bowl of ice or cold water and stirring a few minutes.
Cover by placing plastic wrap directly on custard; chill thoroughly.
Serve over fresh fruit for a fanciful dessert that's simplicity itself.
