Notes

It's important to temper the eggs and keep the mixture at a temperature where the eggs won't cook. Otherwise, there will be bits of cooked egg in the pudding. So this is an essential step that needs to be done correctly. However, if you do end up with the cooked egg, you may be able to get most out with a mesh strainer.
