Bring to a gentle simmer but below boiling for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly, removing the cinnamon and ginger pieces.   

 In a large bowl whisk together egg yolks and corn starch. Then, while whisking slowly mix in a ladle of the warm milk to temper the eggs. Continue doing this until you’ve mixed all the warm milk in. Clean out the saucepan and add the custard mixture back in. Het over low heat for 20 minutes, whisking constantly, until the custard coats the back of the spoon. Remove from heat and stir through the rum-soaked Sunmuscats. 

 Pour into a heat safe bowl and let cool on the counter. Then, refrigerate until cold.
