Auntie's Orange Pudding....cloudy,windy,showers...60's

 This was my Great Aunt's recipe, she was a wonderful cook, I've mentioned her before remember what she said to me when I told her I was getting Married? You can find that post HERE :)

3/4 cup sugar
6 Tablespoons cornstarch
3 3/4 cups milk
3 egg yolks, beaten with some of milk
1 teaspoon orange extract OR 2 tsps. vanilla
1 large or 2 medium orange segments,
            membranes & pith removed

In medium dry saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch. Put over medium
heat and gradually stir in milk. Continue stirring until just starts
to thicken. Add little of hot milk slowly to egg yolks, then add yolks
to pan of milk and continue stirring. Bring to boil carefully while
stirring and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in extract and
cool, covered about 10 minutes. Carefully stir in oranges pieces and
refrigerate until serving time.  A variation that she used to make was
called Kiss Pudding. For that you omitted the oranges, and whipped the
egg whites until stiff, then folded 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
and put dollops on top of vanilla pudding. It was delicious, but that
was back in the day when no one told us not to eat RAW eggs!!!!!
