Ginger custard with orange marmalade recipe

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers, and postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?

*** Early post due to New Year's Eve ***
Post your recipe any time during the week.
Vintage Recipe will resume on Thursdays next week.

This is a fancy custard recipe for a special occasion, or to start off the new year right. There's healthy ginger, wholesome ingredients, and for those who care, you'll notice that there is only 1/3 cup sugar for the entire custard, so even less per serving.

Wishing you a
Happy, Healthy and Prosperous
New Year 2010!!

Ginger Custard with Orange Marmalade
2 cups milk, scalded
2 eggs
