This smooth, creamy sous vide crème brûlée is perfect for impressing guests or a treat-yourself dessert night! With sous vide, it will be perfect every single time. Topped with a caramelized sugar crust, there's no dessert better.
Place the undamaged lids on your jars. Close to "finger tight" (you should be able to easily unscrew with just your fingertips). Use silicone oven gloves or canning tongs to carefully set the jars in the water.
Cook for 1 hour. Remove mason jars to a towel on the counter to cool for 15 minutes. Once cool to the touch, place in the refrigerator if not serving immediately. If serving immediately, place in an ice bath to continue cooling for 15-30 minutes.
When ready to serve, it's time to add the caramelized sugar topping. Remove the lids and spoon a thin layer of turbinado sugar onto the custard. Use a small culinary torch to caramelize the sugar. Add another thin layer and repeat until desired thickness is reached (usually I do 3 thin layers). Repeat on all custards.
