INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 275°F.
  2. In a double boiler, bring heavy cream, granulated sugar and chopped fresh ginger to a gentle simmer, being careful not to reach a boil.
  3. Dissolve sugar completely into cream. Strain fresh ginger pieces and discard.
  4. Beat egg yolks until light in color. Add kabocha squash puree, vanilla bean and grated candied ginger. Whisk in cream and sugar mixture.
  5. Divide among six standard sized ramekins in a warm water bath and bake for approximately 35 to 40 minutes, removing ramekins when  mixture is mostly set but still jiggles slightly in center.
  6. Remove ramekins from water bath and refrigerate until completely cooled - at least three hours or overnight.
  7. To serve, sprinkle each ramekin with 1 tablespoon each turbinado sugar and caramelize with a culinary torch until sugar melts and reaches a hard, glossy finish. Serve immediately.
