It’s Eggnog time!

Below I provide the recipe for my light and fresh eggnog.

Served plain, with cinnamon, or fresh grated nutmeg

Phil’s Famous Eggnog

Ingredients:
12 eggs
1lb powdered sugar
1qt heavy whipping cream
1qt half-and-half
2cups rum
2cups brandy

Mixing the heavy whipped cream in to the yolk and sugar paste

Procedure:
Separate whites from yolks, keeping whites for later
Mix yolks in a pretty large mixing bowl
Fold in 1lb of powdered sugar until you have a light yellow paste
Add heavy cream and half-and-half slowly while stirring until you have a light cream liquid
Put in fridge for at least an hour to let the egg odor leave the mix
Add rum and brandy to taste. 1 cup each is pretty light alcohol, 3 cups each is pretty hard core, but nice…
I usually let this sit in the fridge overnight, then…
Beat egg whites until fluffy but not stiff
Fold beaten whites into liquid and pour into containers. (This makes quite a lot of eggnog…)
