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!
