Tips for Making Pudding:

  • If you end up with any lumps in the pudding pour it through a wire-mesh strainer to remove them.
  • Adding the vanilla after removing it from the heat will help the flavor of the vanilla to be more intense.
  • To keep the pudding from forming a skin on the top of it place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the pudding.
  • Store the pudding covered in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
  • Can be poured into individual serving sized containers for quick lunch items.

I placed plastic wrap on some of the small single serving containers I made and left plastic wrap off of a couple of others to test out if the pudding formed a film on top or not. The ones without the plastic wrap did form a little film over the top but it wasn’t too noticeable. So you can decide if you want to use the plastic or not.
