eggs to make some Christmas eggnog

Posted on by Emily teBogt

Christmas is getting closer and eggnog is a popular drink for this time of year. Instead of buying a carton at the grocery store, why not make it yourself? We've got lot's of eggs for you! I found a recipe on allrecipes.ca that looks pretty good!


4 cups milk
5 whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups sugar
Optional: 2 1/2 cups light rum for alcoholic version
4 cups light cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1. Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting for 5 minutes. Slowly bring milk mixture to a boil.
2. In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until fluffy. Whisk hot milk mixture slowly into the eggs. Pour mixture into saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 3 minutes, or until thick. Do not allow mixture to boil. Strain to remove cloves, and let cool for about an hour.
3. Stir in rum (optional), cream, 2 teaspoon vanilla, and nutmeg. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
