Beat the egg whites in a clean dry bowl until the eggs have firm peaks.


Continue beating the eggs, while slowly adding the sugar.


The eggs can be cooked in one of the next possible ways:


-poach in boiling water (like poached eggs)


-cooked in a microwave on low power for 45 seconds


-poach spoonfuls of the egg white mix in the hot milk for 2 minutes, before adding the egg yolks to make the custard.






Heat the milk over a low-medium heat, with the vanilla pod. Heat until slightly bubbling, then remove from the heat.
