 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8                    Eggs
      2/3   c            Sugar
      1/4   ts           Salt
   26       oz           Evaporated milk, undiluted
    2       ts           Vanilla
 
   Traditionally this is made with a layer of caramelized
   sugar on the bottom of the pan: heat white sugar in a
   heavy pan until it melts and turns light brown, then
   quickly and carefully pour it into the baking pan and
   tilt the pan so it runs all over the bottom.
   
   Beat eggs, mix in sugar and salt, then milk and
   vanilla.  Pour into a glass baking dish and set the
   dish in a pan of hot water in the oven at 350 degrees.
   Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until solid.  I think it
   comes out better if you don't stir it while it’s
   cooking.
