Lime Pots de Creme
Yield: 4 servings
Recipe courtesy of Canyon Ranch.
- 2 medium limes
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 whole eggs
- 1/2 cup reduced-fat (2%) milk
- Garnish: lime wedges, lime peel, kiwi fruit slices
Instructions:Peel limes with a sharp paring knife or a vegetable peeler, being careful not to cut into the white pith. Combine lime peel and water to cover in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Juice limes, discarding membrane and pith. Process lime juice, peel, sugar, eggs, and milk 5 minutes in a blender, stopping to scrape down sides. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into six (4-ounce) ovenproof containers. Place in a large baking pan. Add hot water to pan to depth of 1 inch.
Bake at 275 degrees F until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Garnish if desired.
