  5. Pour the hot milk over the egg mixture, whisking. Stir in the vanilla.

  6. Strain the custard into a large measuring cup or pitcher and skim any foam from the surface.

  7. Divide the custard among four 6-ounce custard cups or ramekins.

  8. Sprinkle the tops with the allspice and put them into a small roasting pan.

  11. Remove the cups from the water bath and let cool.

  12. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until cold.
