Set a kettle to boil water for the instant pot or water bath. Water for the water bath must be hot. While not absolutely necessary for the instant pot, it will pressurize much faster with hot water. If using the oven, preheat to 300º.

Instructions

1. In a medium saucepan combine heavy cream and milk.

3. Stirring constantly, heat cream and milk over a medium flame until small bubbles start to form around the edge of the pan and the mixture starts to simmer.

4. Slowly add the hot cream into the whisked egg yolk mixture. Start with one tablespoon and add the rest slowly as you whisk constantly. Adding the hot cream too fast can cause the yolks to cook. Use a wash rag or towel under the bowl as you whisk to hold the bowl in place.

5. Add the melted white chocolate to the warm custard mixture, whisking to combine completely.

6. Pour the white chocolate custard mixture through a sieve to strain out any bits of cooked egg. A four cup measuring cup with a pour spout makes it very easy to then transfer to your baking cups.

7. Pour the custard evenly into three 5 - 8 ounce cups. Wide mouth pint sized canning jars, ramekins, or any similar heat proof container will work.

1. Loosely cover each jar individually to keep out excess moisture. If using canning jars the sealing lids without the rings work very well. For other jars, use aluminum foil.

2. Place a trivet in the bottom of your instant pot. Add hot water just up to the bottom of the trivet, making sure to use the recommended minimum for your instant pot. Place the covered jars of white chocolate custard onto the trivet.

3. Lock the instant pot lid in place and set the manual pressure to high for 6 minutes. Turn off the keep warm function. Once done, allow the IP to natural pressure release for 15 minutes, then carefully remove the custard cups from the instant pot and place on a rack to cool for at least 30 minutes. Move the custard cups to the fridge and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

3. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes. To test if it's done, lightly jiggle the pan. The edges should be set and the middle of the custard should jiggle lightly. It will continue to set while it cools.
