Earlier this week I shared my like for the nog. Though I’m a big fan of the stuff, I don’t love all the chemicals and corn syrup found in the store bought kind. (I know there is organic stuff out there, but my local store doesn’t sell it.) So, I thought that it would be a good idea to figure out how to make it from scratch since I like to complicate things like that.
Now before you guys start getting all protest-y about the raw egg stuff, I must point out that this is *cooked* homemade egg nog. I don’t like the idea of raw eggs anymore than you do. However, this recipe is cooked to 160 degrees so all bacteria is killed and it is safe to drink. After that, all you have to do is chill it for a few hours and you’re good to go. Let me tell you that it tastes way better than anything you’d find in the store! I used low-fat milk and it was still creamy and delicious. I also got to add my own vanilla and spices which is good for me since I like it super spicy to begin with. All in all- I’m very pleased with the discovery. Enjoy!!
