Pumpkin Custard

  • Set oven temperature to 350ºF/180ºC. Blind bake pie crust for 15 minutes with pie weights and 5 more minutes without. In a saucepan, gather milk, heavy cream, spices and a third of the raw sugar. Bring to a quick boil, turn off the heat, cover and let infuse for an hour or so. Sieve and set aside. Meanwhile, puree the pumpkin pulp with the orange juice. In a pastry bowl, gently beat together the egg yolks, starch and remaining raw sugar. Reheat the infused liquid and temper the egg yolk-starch mixture. Bring back to the saucepan, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes whisking constantly. Remove custard from the heat, add cold and cubed butter, and mix with an immersion blender.
