straight out of the camera [sunday]

I thought I'd try my hand at homemade eggnog in an effort to keep the Eggnog Chai Lattes flowing a little longer. The eggnog... straight out of the camera:

The recipe was pretty simple; next time I'll substitute half-and-half for half of the milk to add a little more weight to it. I used mostly skim milk and made only a half batch. Here's the recipe:

Cooked Eggnog

12 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
2 quarts milk (substitute half-and-half)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Place the sugar and eggs in a pan and whisk until light colored and frothy. Whisk in 2 cups of milk until thoroughly blended. Place the pan over medium heat, continuing to stir until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining 6 cups of milk, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Refrigerate at least 2 hours to cool thoroughly before serving.
