Ok I know there's a lot going on in this section at the moment....gravy, sub par crackling, potato bakes....but I have a custard question......  

So, I make it from scratch....no dramas.....it doesn't separate .....but can I make it Xmas morning and then re heat it once its time to serve pudding? Is that tempting  fate.? ...if I were to reheat it, would you recommend gently on the stove or the microwave....pudding won't be served till around 4 ish...mummy will have had a few drinks by then  wacko.gif ...and the less  I need to faff around with separating eggs and stirring constantly over a low heat etc ...the better..

TIA!

I always reheat in the microwave, never had a problem.

Enjoy!

Reheat in the microwave, but take it out every minute and whisk it  biggrin.gif

can you re-heat over the stove instead.  I find the microwave a pain TBH as I always under/over cook...terrible at using the microwave mellow.gif

Sorry I only saw this now, but everyone has competently answered the question for you already.

I would add, to store your custard, lay some cling wrap over the surface of the custard to prevent a skin from forming and you'll be good to go.

Oh no!  The skin is the best bit!  We used to fight over it as kids.  We called it the "thick bit".

Love properly made egg custard.
