Cheese curd pudding

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 quarts Milk
2 cups White wine
½ cup Unsalted butter; melted & cooled
2 \N Eggs
1 \N Additional egg yolk
½ cup Fine cake or cookie crumbs
\N \N Sugar to taste
1 pinch Salt
2 tablespoons Butter; melted (for topping)
¼ cup White wine (for topping)
3 tablespoons Sugar (for topping)

This is an interesting and a rather fun dish to make. The kids should get a kick out of this as it is a very old dish and something they have certainly never seen. It comes from the hand ofJefferson's daughter, Martha, and we assume it was in the original Monticello cookbook.

Pour the milk and wine into a stainless-steel pan and heat gently. Do not stir. After a few minutes a curd will form. Put a double piece of cheesecloth in a colander and drain the whey from the curd. Discard the whey.

Mix the curd with the butter. Beat the eggs and add to the curd. Stir in the crumbs and sweeten to taste, adding a pinch of salt. Butter a one-quart baking dish and turn the mixture into it. Bake in a 325ø oven until set, about 30 minutes. Serve with melted butter, wine, and sugar sprinkled over the top.
