Has anyone tried Eggnog? What does it taste like? I was thinking about making some for Christmas so if anyone has a good recipe that would be fab :D

There's loads of recipes on the net like this one

http://www.mahalo.com/How_to_Make_Eggnog

I tried it years ago, but can't remember the taste as I was a bit 'fragile' and everything tasted the same :oops: :D

I love eggnog!! I've never made it from scratch though (little wary of raw eggs). I'm used to the thick, sweet stuff in milk cartons that we get in Canada, gonna miss it this year.

Whoo Snowballs! Yay me, my Mum and Sis live on them at Christmas :lol:

I was going to try making eggnog but I might not bother now seeing as I have a Bread and Butter Pudding to make and Christmas Cupcakes for the guys and girls at the OH's office.

Traditional Eggnog Recipe
12 eggs, separated
6 cups milk
2 cups heavy/ thickened cream
2 cups bourbon
1+ ½ cups sugar
¾ cup brandy
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

In a large bowl and using a mixer, beat the egg yolks together with the sugar for approx 10 minutes (you want the mixture to be firm and the colour of butter).
Very slowly, add in the bourbon and brandy - just a little at a time.
When bourbon and brandy have been added, allow the mixture to cool in the fridge (for up to 6 hours, depending on how long before your party you're making the eggnog).
30 minutes before your guests arrive, stir the milk into the chilled yolk mixture.
Stir in 1+ ½ teaspoons ground nutmeg.
In a separate bowl, beat the cream with a mixer on high speed until the cream forms stiff peaks.
In yet another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture.
Gently fold the cream into the egg mixture.
After ladling into cups, garnish with the remainder of the ground nutmeg.

Serves: 8.

this recipe is very good!!!...enjoy,Linda

Gods I'm trying to imagine what it may taste like but I have really no idea :shock:

In the first link, I love the "pasteurized eggs" recommandations...

I've been eating eggs fresh out of the hens' bottom for 4 years and ain't dead yet :mrgreen: (yes, they come from my in laws hens ! but I know americans are a bit sensible, we French are a more rustic kind of people, must be all the full-of-bacterias cheese we eat :lol: ).
