Akin to Creme Brulee the national dessert of Catalonia is now available almost anywhere in Spain. Crema catalana is also known as Crema de San José because it is eaten on March 19th, St. Joseph’s Day.
Add the cinnamon stick and the lemon peel to the milk and bring to the boil over a low heat, then take off the heat. Mix just under 1/2 cup of sugar with the egg and stir until creamy. Remove the cinnamon and lemon peel from the milk. Gradually stir the egg and sugar mixture into the milk. Place it back on the hob and at very low heat, stir until the custard thickens. Fill the custard into oven proof dishes, let it cool down. Then place the dishes into the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes. Now take out of the refrigerator and sprinkle with sugar. Caramelize briefly under the grill.
