Homemade Vanilla Custard & Strawberries

The Custard:
3 eggs beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
The Strawberries:
You can slice fresh strawberries onto custard or you can make this strawberry mixture:
1 quart of strawberries (crushed)
1 cup sugar

Combine eggs and sugar in top of double boiler; beat well. Add flour , stirring until smooth. Gradually add in milk and whipping cream. Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly with a metal spoon. 10 minutes or until mixture thickens and coats the spoon. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. [Note: For those like me who don't have a double boiler just use a small pan on the bottom with water and place a medium or larger pan on top to cook the ingrediants. Pour mixture into six 6-ounce custard or dessert cups. Cover and chill throughly.
Mix strawberries & sugar and then spoon into custard. Serve chilled for best results. Yeilds 6 servings
