Important notes TO REMEMBER


Same rigorous hygiene concerns of the Crme patissiere should
be considered for the Crme Anglais if not more due to the fact
that the Crme Anglais is not sterilized for it did not boil but cook
at 85C.

TIP:

If the cream slightly overshoots its cooking point, it will produce
nodules and it will have to be grounded with a blender in order to
remove the same.
