If you want to unmold this Baked Custard, leave cups in the refrigerator 2 to 3 extra hours.
Preheat oven to 325F. Heat milk in the top of a double boiler over simmering water until surface begins to wrinkle. Blend together the eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Add hot milk gradually, stirring to mix well.
Pour into four 6-ounce individual custard cups. Sprinkle surface lightly with nutmeg. Set cups in a deep pan; pour hot water around cups to come to within ½ inch of tops of custard cups. Bake 50-60 minutes or until knife tip inserted in center of custard comes out clean. Remove from heat and water pan. Chill for several hours before serving.
