Scratch Made Vanilla Pudding Turned Green!

Please help! My vanilla pudding turned green. I know the eggs were good (sink or swim before I cracked them), just bought the milk and flour this morning. This is the second time this has happened. Anyone know what I did wrong? Thanks!!

I used the recipe on the nilla wafers box. 1/2 c sugar, 1/3 c flour, dash salt, 3 eggs, 2 c milk, 1/2 tsp van. It says to separate the eggs, but my grandmother never did. I double the recipe. I do not have a double boiler, so I cook it on low. I appreciate any help/ideas.

I totally understand about following the directions, but I have been making this recipie this way for about 5 years and this is the first time this it has turned green. My husband's thought is could it be a chemical reaction with the whisk and bad salt or bad flour?

No Mam it is not copper.

It has to be a chemical reaction but from the ingredient list I cannot figure out what caused it.

If the pot is uncoated aluminum, that could be the culprit. I have seen eggs cooked in uncoated aluminum and they turned green.

I don't know why but I have had the same thing happen with instant sugar free pudding, chocolate. i blamed it on buying the cheaper store brand. But of course I could be off base here.
