    Cosima's Note:

    My entire life I have been obsessed with eggnog, but I'd never had it homemade. Then, on a very special day, I decided to make it myself, using this recipe, and I've never gone back! Fortunately, this eggnog doesn't require the usual 12 eggs! I got this recipe from the most wonderful book I've ever received, Celtic Folklore Cooking, by Joanne Asala. Celtic Folklore Cooking suggests this eggnog for Ostara, Yule, New Year's Eve, and all winter celebrations. I drink it all the time!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Separate eggs. Set egg whites in a metal bowl and place in the refrigerator.
    2. 2
      In a small mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until blended. Gradually add 3 tablespoons of sugar, beating at high speed until thick and lemon-coloured. Stir in the milk, rum or brandy, vanilla, and salt. Place egg yolk mixture in refrigerator to chill thoroughly, about 2 hours.
    3. 3
      Whip the cream. Remove the egg whites from the refrigerator and beat until soft peaks form (if using same beaters, make sure they are thoroughly washed). Add remaining sugar, beating the mixture into stiff peaks. Fold yolk mixture and whipped cream into egg whites. Mix in cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie mix to taste.
    4. 4
      Note: Make sure you put the eggnog in a container you can shake, as it tends to settle.

      This was pretty good egg nog. I had to add a bit more sugar for our sweet tooths. I'd like to try it with almond flavor sometime too. I have read that the alcohol kills any potential nasties that might be in the eggs. I used Captain Morgan spiced rum. The problem is in the ingredient list. You have 3 eggs listed at the top, and 3 egg whites listed at the bottom of the list. From reading the instructions, I believe they are the same 3 eggs. This is the way I made it. I like that this doesn't use 12 eggs, but it also makes a smaller amount than most recipes. Overall, this is a pretty good egg nog recipe, it just needs a little tweaking. Thanks for posting.
