I noticed that Europeans are less worried about salmonella. Perhaps it's not as widespread a problem here than in North America?

Ren,"pulling taffy" is a process in which you pull the taffy and fold it over to make the taffy lighter.The closest sweet that I can think of here in the U.K to it would be Starburst. :D :D Linda

Eggnog is a thick creamy drink that is sweet and has a strong nutmeg flavor. Think of the consistancy of a thick milkshake that isn't frozen. Then..............you add RUM!! You don't have to add rum, but it makes it yummy! It is a filling drink and should be served cold. I wish I could I send you all some, but I don't think it would be very good by the time it got there. :wink: Hey, I know...stop by this weekend and I will make you some! :lol: :lol:

Taffy is Toffee. Think hard butterscotch softened and stretched...

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: ).


That's funny- the pasteurization process was invented by Louis Pasteur..... a French man :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The reason they recommended pasteurized eggs is because the eggs are not cooked in eggnog. They are added raw. A lot of people here are concerned about salmonella in the raw egg. When you cook fresh eggs, it kills any bacteria that is present. I am brave though.....I will put raw unpasteurized eggs in my eggnog. :wink: I figure the rum I add will take of any bacteria (and brain cells too!) :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh hell and once I knew that "false friend" :roll:.

Sensible in english would translate as... well I can only think of an expression, "avoir les pieds sur terre" :lol:. Serious, logical and so on, not daydreaming or anything... ;).

Cgoodall, yep I know about Pasteur of course :lol:.
As for raw eggs, they're raw in mayonnaise too ! ;)

Ahhh ok now I know what a cup is might ring me Mum see if she fancys making some :lol:

I lurve Taffy!!! I had it in Florida you can buy it in packets or boxes it's delicious. Linda is right closest thing is Starbust over here but Taffy is way better.

Linda do you have a recipe for the Pancakes you guys have for breakfast over there. I have a recipe for Scotch Pancakes and Lemon Pancakes I think the difference is that you guys use Buttermilk but I could be wrong.
