So before thanksgiving while having Sunday dinner with the family, we happened on the conversation of eggnog. Turns out the kids love eggnog; even requesting it for Thanksgiving. Rather than buy it at the store I decided to try my hand at making it. I am really glad I did although it takes two days to make, it was well worth it!
4 cups half and half
1 cup white sugar
11 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups of heavy cream
1 ¼ cup spiced rum
1 pint vanilla ice cream
In a sauce pan over medium heat, stir together the half and half and sugar. Whisk in the egg yolks and cook until a light custard forms; DO NOT BOIL! Remove from heat and cool, place in the refrigerator overnight.
Into the chilled mixture stir in the vanilla, cream, rum and ice cream. Serve with a little nutmeg on top. Very creamy and delicious!
