Most delicious Homemade Eggnog

When I was a little girl, I remember knowing that the Christmas season had started because there was a carton of eggnog in the fridge. My mother always bought it for my Father because he loved it so much. He always made it look so tasty. Yet when I tried it, I thought it was awful and since my husband didn't like it, I didn't think much of never having any again...until my neighbor's daughter brought me some in a quart size jar that she had made in home economics. 

 It was so delicious I seriously think I drank most all of it and have made it every year since. My sister asked me for the recipe awhile back, so I thought I might as well share it with all of you! 
Home Economics Eggnog:
3/4 C. sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 egg yolks
        -stir in slowly
        - heat until mixture steams
          (do not boil)
        -chill mixture until cold
6 egg whites
        -stiffly beat
1/2 C. sugar
        -slowly add sugar to egg whites
        - add egg white mixture to custard
1 C. whipping cream
        -stiffly beat
1/2 C. sugar
        -slowly  add in sugar to whipping cream
        -add to custard
        -mix till combined
4 C. milk
        -add to mixture
        -add to taste (approximately 1-2 tsp.)
*makes a little less than a gallon
 Now if my family likes eggnog, it must be the most delicious.
Happy Holidays!


  1. My hubby loves Egg Nog and I'm sure he would love drinking this. I'm hosting a link party on Sunday at 6pm PST and would love if you came and linked up.

  2. Yum! I didn't know you could make your own. Pretty pictures too.
