Why We Love It

The original homemade custard, Bird's Custard Powder is a quick and easy way to make traditional British custard on the fly. This is the original thickening agent of custard invented by Alfred Bird in 1837 because his wife was allergic to eggs. Mix two tablespoons of powder with sugar and milk until it becomes a paste; then add two cups of nearly boiling milk and heat to a boil. Serve alone or over your favorite pudding.

Comments about Bird's Custard Powder, Set of 2:

My husband remembers eating Bird's custard as a child in Scotland so when I saw this, I had to get it for him. It's a little work but it can be made as sweet as you like and as thick or thin as you like. He likes it thin, as a custard sauce, over vanilla pound cake. Brought back happy memories for him.
