Easy grape juice custard recipe or favorite juice custard

Welcome back to Vintage Recipe Thursday! Sometimes we need a quick and tasty recipe to serve just one person. It might be a quick snack for ourselves, or it might be for a child. This is exactly what I found in my vintage cookbook, and it can easily be doubled too. The grape juice made me think of back-to-school. It's a favorite of many children. Feel free to use just about any kind of juice. I think a coconut custard would be quite tasty. Other good choices would be cherry, apricot, apple, or peach.

You will find that you are helping your own blogs become more popular and helping the foodie community remain a friendly community. Because of those who don't follow such etiquette, I'm saddened to say that for the first time in almost 4 years of blogging, I will have to resort to deleting those who abuse the use of the linky parties here at Joy of Desserts. For basic linky party etiquette you MUST: Follow the linky party theme; link directly to your participating posts; link back to all your hostesses on each participating post (NOT a different page), and don't just link and run.
