First make sweetened condensed milk! Really. See recipe.

Preheat oven and two 10x14 baking pans with about 1/2 inch water in them to 350*.

In large bowl stir gently together so that you don't get many bubbles:
8 eggs with
1/2 t salt

Gently stir in

a little at a time making sure its heat (if you've just made it) doesn't curdle the eggs. Mix until smooth.

Measure and stir in

Pour some into two pie dishes. Carefully pull out the rack with the hot water and place the pie dishes into the water bath. Carefully slide rack back in.

Bake until the custard is golden and set about 35 minutes.
