    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 1/2 cup The Perfect Purée Carmelized Pineapple Concentrate,  thawed
    • 1/4 cup cornstarch
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/4 tsp. salt
    • 3 egg yolks
    • 6 egg whites
    • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
Method:
1. In small saucepan, mix together milk and Carmelized Pineapple and heat until just simmering.
2. Meanwhile, stir cornstarch, sugar and salt together. Whisk in egg yolks and mix until smooth.
3. Pour about 1/3 of the hot milk into the eggs, whisking quickly to prevent cooking.
