Holiday Favorites

December 20, 2017


We both love the holidays here at Western Legacies. The holidays are a great time to reminisce about family traditions and legacies. Legacies are anything handed down from the past and some of our families' favorite legacies are the recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. Spending time in the kitchen making family recipes brings back so many happy memories. We wanted to share our favorite holiday recipes and memories with you.


Krystal’s Holiday Favorite


Custard is one of the first things that comes to mind when I think about the holidays. It’s a Christmas Eve tradition in our family. I can remember many Christmases spent standing on a chair in front of the stove in my grandmother’s kitchen stirring the custard for what seemed like hours. We would make it by the gallon and often set it outside in a snow drift to let it cool. All the stirring and waiting for it to cool finally lead up to a small glass of the wonderful creaminess.


Soft Custard


1 pint milk, scalded

2 egg yolks

½ C sugar

¼ t. Vanilla

Few grains salt


Beat eggs, add sugar, salt and scalded milk slowly. Cook in double boiler, stirring constantly until mixture coats spoon. Add vanilla. Cool and serve with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top. Recipe can be multiplied to make a larger batch.
