Merry Yule folks,
I thought that in celebration of the holiday that I would share one of my favorite recipes. This is the secret to the egg nog that we whip up every year. Keep in mind that unlike the stuff you find at the grocery store, you are dealing with raw eggs – not a pasteurized product. The alcohol is necessary to kill Salmonella or any other harmful bacteria so don’t think you can leave it out (why would you do such a thing anyways?)
Alrighty – get the following together.
Now do this:
Mix the egg yolks and 1/2 cup of sugar in a bowl. Beat until thick.
In separate bowl beat the egg whites with 1/4 cup of sugar until thick.
In yet another bowl beat the cream until thick. Mix in the cream with the yolks, then fold in the egg whites, and toss in the milk, Bourbon, vanilla, and a pinch of ground nutmeg. You could also add some cinnamon, allspice, cloves, etc to suit your taste.
Chill before serving.
