DIRECTIONS

  1. Fill and preheat the SousVide Supreme water oven to 140F/60C.

  4. Add the cinnamon sticks and use the displacement method (Archimedes’ Principle) to remove as much air as possible and zip the seal.

  6. Remove the pouch from the water oven and quick chill, submerged in ice water (half ice/half water) for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Strain the mixture to remove the cinnamon sticks and any solid bits and store in a clean pouch or covered container in the refrigerator until serving.
  8. To serve, put the egg and cream mixture into a large punch bowl, stir in the rum, and sprinkle cinnamon over the surface. Ladle into individual mugs or glasses for serving.
