This recipe was adapted from The Cooking Geek.com. We love eggnog so I just make this large batch. I found these spice amounts to be the closest to store bought flavor, but better. I really like vanilla, but it does not work in this. The amount of cloves is more like 1/10t, but it would not accept that entry. I use fat free milk and it even works with 7c milk & 1c cream. I use stevia substitute to lower calories and it actually did not go bad as fast last year. You must cook this "low & slow" to prevent a grainy texture. Do not add the salt before cooking, or it can curdle the milk once cooked (think cheese making). It is very thick, so omit a whole egg for thinner consistency. Also omit a whole egg if using extra large eggs. Enjoy!
