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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the milk and non-fat milk for 30 seconds in a blender. Add 6 egg yolks and mix until combined.
  2. In a bowl mix the 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin and the sugar. Add the gelatin/sugar to the milk/yolk mixture and blend until combined. Add heavy cream until well blended.
  3. Pour mixture into a saucepan and heat over medium heat until temperature reaches 160 degrees. Refridgerate for 12 hours.
  4. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, the rum and nutmeg. Blend well and serve.
  5. Note* Cooking time varies, so it is a estimate. Please watch your temperature. The 12 hour chilling time not added to the final prep time.
