6 kiwis, peeled and chopped
2 ripe mangoes, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 melon, peeled, cored, and chopped
400g strawberries, hulled and quartered
400g blackberries
200g blueberries

For the custard

335ml whole milk
150g sugar
6 large egg yolks
30g unsalted butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1) In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk milk and sugar constantly.

2) In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. Slowly incorporate the hot milk into the egg mixture. Return the mixture to the saucepan. Heat the custard over low heat about 5 minutes or until thickened slightly, stirring constantly. (It should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not let the mixture come to a simmer or the eggs will curdle.)

3) Remove from heat and melt the butter into custard. Add vanilla. Immediately strain the custard into a small bowl. Place in refrigerator to cool.

4) Drizzle over fruit and serve.
