0 1/2 cup  sugar
1 tbsp  cold water
3 each  eggs
0 1/4 cup  frozen orange juice concentrate
12 floz  Milk, evaporated, nonfat/skim
0 1/2 cup  fat free milk
2 tsp  vanilla extract
0.125 tsp  almond extract
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. In a heavy, small saucepan, mix 1/4 cup sugar with the water. Cook over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves, stirring frequently.
  3. Increase the heat, and boil without stirring until the sugar turns deep golden brown, swirling the pan occasionally.
  4. Immediately pour the caramel into six 6-ounce custard cups.
  5. Carefully tilt the cups slightly, covering as much of the bottom (but not the sides) as possible.
  6. Set the cups aside.
  7. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, orange juice concentrate, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar.
  8. Gradually whisk in both the milks and the extracts.
  9. Divide the custard among the prepared cups.
  10. Place the cups in a large baking pan. Add enough hot water to the pan to come halfway up the sides of the cups.
  11. Bake in preheated oven until the custards are set, about 80 minutes.
  12. Remove the cups from the water.
  13. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  14. When ready to serve, run a small, sharp knife around the custard sides to loosen.
  15. Invert a custard onto each dessert plate, or eat from the cup. Makes 6 Servings.
