Recipe by Silent Rain
Calders Dairy is a very well known Dairy farm in Michigan. They had an outlet in Lincoln Park, Michigan that I used to go to all the time growing up. They had the most sinful eggnog. :) Here is the recipe as it was given to me. It is rich and creamy.
- 2 1⁄4 cups milk
- 1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
- 6 egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons rum or 1⁄2 teaspoon rum flavoring
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons nutmeg
