In response to today’s Daily Post Prompt, Pour Some Sugar On It, I have to say that my favourite choice of sweet thing has to be egg custard. Ever since I can remember, my Grandmother used to make these things that were big enough for 6 to eat. On top would be sprinkled Nutmeg that looked similar to pepper. She could also make gravy to die for, but that’s another story.
Once a week, we have a treat from our local bakers Greggs of their own egg custard tarts. They don’t have the nutmeg on top, but these delightful pieces of mouth watering eggy custard flavour type mush in a pastry crust, (sorry, that’s the best description I can give) are just sublime. They come in packs of three, it must be a marketing ploy, because nothing ever comes in odd numbers. Most families will want a minimum of four, so you have to buy 2 packets of three and then someone gets an extra treat!
Now, if they could only make them sprinkled with Nutmeg on them, oooooh. I could add it myself, but it just wouldn’t be the same. Anyway, if you’re ever in the UK, find yourself a ‘Greggs’ bakers shop and treat yourself to one of these little pieces of pure heaven. You can thank me later.
