This recipe calls for a basic mixing glass set that you can get at a craft store or from your kitchen cabinet.
First, mix the pudding ingredients: four egg yolks, three cups of buttermilk, four ounces of sugar and one teaspoon of salt.
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks until they are light and fluffy, about three minutes.
Remove the mixture from the mixer and let cool on a wire cooling rack.
Next, in a double boiler, melt the sugar over medium heat. Allow the sugar to melt until it comes to almost room temperature.
