Instructions
  1. Combine milk, eggs, egg yolk, sugar and vanilla using an immersion blender.
  2. Using a medium saucepan on medium heat, bring the egg milk mixture to a gentle simmer and cook until 165-175F.
  3. Remove from meat and combine with vanilla and matcha powder until thoroughly blended. (Use blender to ensure mixture is smooth)
  4. Add custard base to 5-6 canning jars and set in a warm water bath in a pot or saucepan large enough to accommodate all the jars. The water level should be at least halfway up the jar. Bring the water to a simmer and cover.
  5. Steam the jars for at least 15 minutes on low heat. Once the top appears cooked, remove from water bath and allow to cool.
  6. Eat as is or top with your favorite topping – kuromitsu, whipped cream, powdered sugar, azuki, or ice cream!
