Crème Brûlée part 4: Beast and Beastiality

Divide the custard equally among ramekins. Place ramekins in a pan and fill the pan with hot water. Cook for 25 minutes, cool for 30 minutes, and chill for 3 hours. During this time, read a copy of Rash and Rationality.

Spread a tablespoon of sugar on the tops and apply a liberal amount of THE FIRE. A kitchen torch (shown in picture, used for about 15 seconds before the big torch, Murderface, was brought out) will do the job eventually, but we'd been waiting for three hours for these things to set and weren't gonna wait another 45 seconds for some dinky, 100 Btu/h kitchen torch. Butane is for wusses, anyway.

This picture was taken approximately 0.023 seconds after THE FIRE was applied. Brutal.

A nice, caramelized topping for our Crème Brûlée. We could have heated sugar on the stovetop past hard crack (~300F), burned it a little, and poured a quarter-inch topping on these babies, but we just like to burn things with torches.
