    Default Eggnog??

    Anyone make their own, home-made eggnog? My family usually buys Matanuska Maid, but with them going out of business we're finding ourselves less-than-impressed with the 'nog most places are carrying.

    I think KTUU had the Mat. Maid Egg Nog recipe on their site sometime last year, but I wasn't able to find it.

    Does anyone have any eggnog recipe that they like? Also on that note, is it hard to make? I'd never really thought about it but now it sounds like a fun 'holiday project'


    Thanks for any help y'all can provide,

    Default Love the stuff

    But I've never made it. However, if you go to All recipes: http://allrecipes.com/ and type eggnog into the search bar you will get a number of recipes.

    Hope this helps,

    Default It'll put hair on your chest,

    But here's a favorite:

    Yes, it's really George Washington's recipe, although the number of eggs is a guess. We've made it with an even dozen, and it's good.

    Just don't drive anywhere afterwards, and watch your cholesterol.

    I don't like eggnog. Never really have.

    But I thought Mat Maid's was good enough that I liked it.

    You're right, I don't know what it was, but Mat Maid's eggnog was the best.

    I'd hoped that the new creamery here in the valley would have gotten the Mat Maid recipe and would make it to sell, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

    crack an egg into a bowl
    stir in 1/4 tsp sugar

    Open bottle of rum
    pour rum over lightly iced Coca Cola with a twist of lime
    Set egg aside for scramble later
    Drink rum
    Repeat
    Repeat again


    That's the best egg nog recipe you'll ever get

    makes one punch bowl

    18 eggs separate yolks from whites... is okay to have white in yolk. but not yolk in whites...


    1/2 cup powder sugar more to taste as needed your choice
    1/2 tsp nutmeg
    1/4 tsp allspice
    1 1/2 tbsp vanilla.

    1 gallon WHOLE milk

    kitchen aids work best with wisk... but mixers are OK too

    whip yolks and vanilla till stiff.. add powder sugar fold in... allspice and nutmeg too.. touch of Cinnamon if you like( i don't) Pumpkin pie spice good sub for all....

    yolks should be very stiff. Add 1/2 milk

    fold slowly till mixed..

    1/4 cup rum
    1/4 cup brandy
    ( i like amaretto too)
    pour liqueur over back of spoon to float on nog....

    slowly mix with rubber spatula..

    ( keep from separating)

    if ready for party... mix remaining 1/2 gallon milk if not chill until 1/2 hour before serving then add remaining milk by slow folding with Spat.




    Whites.... add 1/2 granulated suger... whip till stiff peak form... spoon over nog at serving time. sprinkle lightly with nut meg..and Cinnamon. or you could be a lame-o and use cool whip but it sinks in...


    This is a thinner NOG then store bought... but dang tasty... dad taught me as a kid..




    now you have nearly 3/4 bottle of rum and brandy left over... additions as necessary in served glass

    Default valley creamery

    I stopped in to the creamery in the valley to ask about egg nog a few weeks back. They are just getting thier feet on the ground and do not have alot of different products to sell yet. However, as they get up and running they will start to make more than just cheese and ice cream along with milk. Souond like next year they might be able to accomodate our needs a bit better.
    They make ice cream, but currently is only avaliable in bulk containers. The white cheddar cheese they sell for $8-/lb is very good. Reminds me of Wisconsin cheese.

    Sorry no recipe, but some of those listed above sound great.

    Don't have the exact amounts in front of me, but this my recipe (roughly):

    6 eggs vigorously beaten
    mix in 1 cup sugar

    add:
    1 tbs vanilla
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1 qt cream
    1 qt whole milk

    finally:
    1/2 cup quality dark rum
    1/2 cup brandy

    Tasty, but probably not the healthiest drink out there.

    ****, I can't believe I did that! It's 6 eggs ruffle. I've been doing that recipe for years, I guarantee satisfaction. Let me know if you made it and how it turned out for you.

    Hi Pig Valve,

    No problem, and thanks for the e-mail, though it wasn't necessary.

    No, I hadn't made it yet. It's still on the back burner, so to speak.

    Thanks for the 'missing link,' though. As soon as I get some time, rum, and energy, I'll give it (as well as one or two of the other recipes) a whirl.

    High-butter-fat contents are hard on my stomach, but I love to consume them, typically paying little heed to the warnings that my intestines try to give me.

    BTW, usually, if I'm adding alcohol to an egg nog, I try to use a spiced rum. I know that most high-grade rums often aren't available in a spiced rum, leaving the middle of the road to lesser rums, such as Captn. Morgan's, as the most likely to be added, but I prefer the spiced stuff on the rare occasion that I dabble in such things as eggnog.

    Thanks again!
