Flan with Cardamom, Honey, and Pistachios


From the story: Exploring Culture and Conversion Through Food by Anisa Abeytia

6 eggs, beaten well
3 cups milk
1 cup honey, divided
2 teaspoons cardamom
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup diced pistachios

Beat the eggs and add the milk, then add half the spices and ½ cup honey. Pour the remaining honey and spices into 8 custard dishes. I have used one large baking dish, but it never comes out quite right. Then add the egg mixture to each dish. Place the dishes in a larger baking dish and pour in boiling water to 1-inch depth. Bake at 325 degrees for 30–40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the flan. Once done, turn each dish upside down onto a plate and garnish with pistachios.
