Have a Bit of Eggnog

Whether a non alcoholic or alcoholic version our family has long loved eggnog. There are some that do not like this holiday favorite but others like my husband and children feel that it is not the holidays until they get some. Oh so yummy.

4 cups milk
5 whole cloves
2 1/ 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 egg yolks
1 1/ 2 cups sugar
2 1/ 2 cups light rum
4 cups light cream
1/ 2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
· Mix cloves, milk, 1/ 2-teaspoon vanilla extract and cinnamon in a saucepan and heat at low setting for about 4 minutes to bring the mixture to a boil slowly. · Take a large bowl and combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until fluffy. Then, whisk hot milk mixture slowly in the eggs. · Pour the whisked mixture in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes stirring it continuously. Don’t boil the mixture. · Strain the mixture to remove cloves and let it cool for about an hour. · Now, stir in rum, cream and 2 teaspoon vanilla along with nutmeg. Refrigerate it overnight before setting. · Serve chilled.
