"Strawberry crème brûlée is the decadently delicious dessert your Valentine’s Day celebration needs. Layers of sweet strawberry jam and rich, creamy custard are topped with a crisp crust of caramelized sugar!"
5. Temper the egg yolks by slowly adding about 1/4 cup of the hot milk and cream into the egg yolk mixture, while whisking constantly. Once incorporated repeat with another 1/4 cup of the milk and cream. Then add the custard mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining milk and cream. Whisk to combine completely. Adding the hot cream too quickly to the egg yolks will result in scrambled eggs.
7. Spoon 1 tablespoon of strawberry jam into the bottom of each custard cup. Pour the custard mixture on top, dividing equally between the custard cups. Create the water bath by pouring the boiling water into the pan until it's half way up the side of the custard cups. Careful not to pour water into the custard.
10. Cover each custard with 1 1/2 teaspoons of white sugar, adjusting for ramekin width if needed. Brulee the tops with a kitchen torch until the sugar is caramelized. Top with fresh sliced strawberries and serve immediately.
