Our Favorite Eggnog
Eggnog is something I have always loved and having our own #familymilkcow makes it really convenient to make delicious homemade eggnog with out all the junk. I usually make a big batch since it seems to disappear rather quickly in our home!
✨Homemade Eggnog ✨
8 cups milk
1 cup sugar
6 egg yolks
1/2 tsp salt
First put the milk in a pot on the stove a start to warm up, I have scaled it before or just gotten it up in the 80s, both make great eggnog!
Next get your stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and add the egg yolks, sugar and salt. You want to put the mixer on high and whip it until its pale and stiff.
Then you are going to bring your bowl of whipped eggs/salt/sugar over to your milk that has been heating up. Take a measuring cup of ladle and add a spoonful of the milk to the egg mixture at a time. While you do this make sure you stir the egg mixture so the milk does not cook the egg.
Once you have about half the milk into the bowl add all the egg/milk mixture to the pot on the stove and cook for 5 min.
From here either leave the eggnog on the stove to cool for several hours (this results in thicker eggnog) Or transfer it to the fridge to cool.
Once cooled Vanilla and nutmeg to taste
-optional- save whites to whip and make once eggnog has cooled to go on top!
