      3/4   c            Sugar
    2       tb           -water
   24       oz           Evaporated milk (2 cans)
    6       lg           Eggs
    1       tb           Grated orange peel
    1       t            Vanilla extract
                         Orange slices (optional)

   slowly rotate mold until bottom and sides are coated;
   set aside to cool. 2. In 4-cup glass measureing cup,
   place evaporated milk; microwave on HIGH 5 minutes.
   Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine eggs, remaining
   sugar, orange peel and vanilla; mix well. Gradually
   stir hot evaporated milk into egg mixture; mix well.
   3. Into prepared mold, pour all but 1 cup egg mixture;
   place mold in microwave. Pour remaining egg miture
   into mold. Microwave on MEDIUM 7 to 10 minutes,
   turning every 3 minutes--custard will be liquid toward

   refrigerate at least 6 hours. 4. Run small knife
   around edge of mold to loosen. Hold rimmed serving
   plate over mold; invert; lift off mold. Garnish with
   orange slices and mint, if desired. Makes 10 servings.
