lemon myrtle custard

This is SOOOOOOO yummy, and more so because I grew the lemon myrtle myself.  It really is exciting to be starting to use things from my garden in my cooking.

100g sugar
40g cornflour
2 eggs
500ml milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
6-8 lemon myrtle leaves fresh from the tree

I made this in my thermomix [7 1/2 min speed 4], but you can also make it on the stove, stirring constantly over a medium heat until it thickens.  The most important thing to remember is to bruise the lemon myrtle leaves and add them towards the end of cooking time to maximise the flavour.
