1

Pour the cold water into a small cup and stir in the gelatin. Let it stand for 5 minutes. It will become firm.

2

Place the milk, cream, salt and sugar in a small saucepan. Turn the heat to medium and stir often. Heat the mixture until a small ring of bubbles appears around the inside edge of the pan. You need to stand right there and watch carefully. This process takes only a couple of minutes, and sometimes you will notice a little steam rising from the milk mixture. Don’t let it boil.

3

Remove the pan from the heat. Add the gelatin mixture and vanilla, and stir until the gelatin completely dissolves. Pour the custard into serving cups. I like to use 1-cup glass containers; each holds 2/3 cup custard. Let the custard cool a little, then cover each cup with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours before unmolding to serve.
