This recipe is not for the cholesterol conscious nor if you are sugar intolerant but it is oh so good- Think of it as amedicinal nightcap - Good night Irene. Wonderful on a cold winter night. Because you bring the sherry to a boil most of the alcohol has burned off so it is not a high alcohol drink.
- Put the sherry, sugar& nutmeg into a saucepan, bring to a boil and stir until the sugar melts In another saucepan scald the milk (watch you do not scorch the milk).
- Put the egg yolks into a bowl and beat about 1/2 cup of the milk into them, then slowly add the rest of the scolded milk beating all the time Return mixture to the saucepan, mediem-low heat and cook until the mixture coats the back of a metal spoon Gradually add the sherry mixture, mix well but do not beat.
- Heat through, remove nutmeg& serve.
