Paste for Set Custards

img_1550-001

The paste (pastry dough) for the set custards is prepared by bringing water to a boil and then adding lard until the lard is melted.  The lard and water mixture is allowed to cool while mixing in the flour with spoon and then kneaded by hand until the results are as pictured.  It is a 3:1 of flour to lard.
