6-Minute Meyer Lemon Custard

The note for this recipe (http://food52.com/recipes...) says this was made with a blender that heats the contents. The recipe writer hasn't responded to an earlier comment, so I'm not sure she's being notified of questions; as a result, I'm posting my question here. For those without a blender, the recipe says we have to cook the custard. Does that mean those with a blender that does *not* have a heating function should also cook the custard to make sure the eggs are fully cooked?

I made this. I don't have a fancy blender. I blended all the ingredients in my cheapo blender and then transferred it to the double boiler on my stove and cooked it to 160. Worth it - it was delicious.

Thanks, Cade. I'm going to make it, too, but I just wondered if it could be made with a stick blender, too. I guess I'll get the old double boiler out!

I actually tried it with an immersion blender and it worked very well. I blended with my immersion blender and then transferred to a double boiler and cooked to 160.

That answers my question, then, Stephanie, but I think it should be made clearer in the recipe that if you don't use a blender with a heating element, you must cook the custard to make it safe.

Diana, I'm so glad you liked the custard! I'd love to know where you think the recipe is unclear -- I want to make sure it's not confusing for others.
