Suicide Squad Lime Puddin’

imageI recently saw Suicide Squad and while I did like parts of it, I was a little disappointed by how little screen time the Joker had. So here is my tribute to the Joker, one of my favorite characters, with which I thought Jared Leto gave a terrifying performance! See full review and recipe demo here:

Suicide Squad Lime Puddin’

3/4 cup sugar

3 Tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup milk

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup lime juice

1 Tablespoon butter

Lime Zest (optional)

In small saucepan, whisk sugar, cornstarch and egg yolk, then gradually whisk in milk. Add lime zest at this point if using.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened and mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Mixture will thicken more upon cooling.image

Off heat,whisk in lime juice. Add food coloring at this point if using.

Pour through fine sieve into a bowl with the butter in it.

Stir until butter is melted.

While still warm, place piece of plastic wrap directly onto puddin’ surface, then chill 2-3 hours before serving.

Serve over fresh fruit if desired. I used mango, pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, bananas,  and blackberries.
