Eggnog Season!

Got my first quart of eggnog today. I picked up the Southern Comfort traditional eggnog, and it's really, really good.

MMM. I'm definitely looking for it my next trip to the store. I have never had the SoCo brand.

I love eggnog but, man oh man, I can feel my arteries clog just thinking about it.

I'll probably just stick to the Southern Comfort by itself.

I hate to think of wasting perfectly good rum, or bourbon with eggnog. . . SoCo, go for it.

It is alcohol-free. It's just very good, well spiced and flavorful. It does include a recipe on how to mix SoCo with it.

Alas, being diabetic, I have to make my own. Pre-made egg nog from teh store has sooooo much sugar in it. Fortunately, it's easy to make.

Heat 1 quart of milk on the stove until it's almost boiling. Add sweetener, 1 tbs. vanilla extract, or 2 vanilla beans that have been split and scraped, with the scrapings, to the milk, and 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg. Let steep in the hot milk for five to ten minutes.

Beat two egg yolks until creamy smooth. Strain milk into a bowl, then put back into the pan. Again heat until it's almost boiling. Slowly whisk 1/2 cup of the hot milk into the beaten egg yolk. Pour the egg yolk/milk mixture into the pan. Bring to a slow boil while continuously stirring. Cook until it begins to thicken and strain into a container to be put into the fridge. Enjoy cold or hot.

You can add other flavors to your egg nog, such as allspice, cloves, a touch of ginger, etc. You can make it richer by adding more egg yolk to the recipe, or using half-n-half, or by adding cream to the milk. I've even been known to add a bit of malt powder to the egg nog as it's cooking. It then tastes like a very rich french-vanilla malt. Yum.
