This is the second “mastic gum” recipe after the cookies. I just love the smell of mastic. It gives a regular pudding an extraordinary flavor.
* 3 tbsp of unsalted butter
* 3 tbsp of all purpose flour
* 3 pieces of mastic gum
* 6 tbsp of granulated sugar
* 3 cups of milk
Place the mastic gum in the freezer and let it sit there for 10 minutes and then take it out. Grind it in the coffee grinder until ground to the point of flour.
In a medium pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add flour and stir until the flour gives its raw smell. Take the pot away from the heat. Add first cup of milk and whisk it consistently until smooth. move the pot over the heat again and add the other two cups of milk, sugar and the gum. Mix it with a whisk and turn the heat up to high. Keep mixing until it starts to bubble and becomes ticker.Turn the heat off. Apportion the pudding into four bowls.
