In a large saucepan, combine milk and salt and scald. Remove from heat and add 1 c. sugar, stirring until it is dissolved. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until slightly foamy. Slowly add the sweetened milk while stirring. Add vanilla. If you would like a golden color to the flan add a little yellow food coloring or one drop caramel coloring.
In a small skillet, melts 6 Tbs. sugar until it is a light golden brown color. Coat a 1 ½ quart tube pan with the caramel. Pour the custard into the mold and place the mold into a 12” deep Dutch oven filled with water half way up the tube mold.
Bake at 300°F for about 1 hour or until set. The custard is done when a knife inserted into the middle of the custard comes out clean. Cool completely before inverting onto a shallow serving plate. If the flan does not release easily, immerse the tube pan in some hot water for a few seconds, then turn out on the serving plate.
