Ingredients

  • 1

    cup water

  • 14

    fresh or dried lemon verbena leaves (optional) (leaves 2" to 2 1/2" long)

  • 10

    strips lemon peel, 2" by 1/2" yellow part only

  • 6

    tablespoons sugar

  • 1 1/2

    cups whipping cream

  • 6

    large egg yolks

  • 1

    teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine first 3 ingredients in medium saucepan. Boil until mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 4 minutes. Add sugar; simmer until mixture is reduced to 1/3 cup, about 3 minutes. Stir in cream. Whisk yolks to blend in medium bowl. Gradually whisk in hot cream mixture. Whisk in lemon juice. Strain custard through sieve into 4-cup measuring cup. Divide among six 2-cup ramekins or soufflé dishes. Cover ramekins with foil. Place ramekins in 13- by 9- by 2-inch metal baking pan. Add enough hot water to pan to come halfway up sides of ramekins. Bake custards until just set, about 45 minutes. Remove pan from oven; let custards cool in water in pan. Transfer ramekins to refrigerator. Chill at least 4 hours or overnight. Serve chilled. This recipe yields 6 servings.
