Who else loves egg nog?

I do! I've loved it for years. I've never had home made, though. Yesterday, we found pumpkin flavored egg nog and I think it's amazing. I'm going to try to find a good recipe and make some this year.

  • I love eggnog, but can't stand the commercially-prepared glop. It's too sweet, and I have no idea at all how they achieve that creepy texture.

    Homemade eggnog in Canada is safe, because historically hens that lay salmonella eggs are destroyed, whereas in the US the official policy has long been 'since people always and only ever eat cooked eggs, it's not a real danger to anyone' so salmonella is now endemic and almost impossible to avoid. It is possible to heat eggs gently to make them safe to use (the process is called 'coddling'), or pasteurized 'fresh' eggs can be purchased in cartons.

    It helps if you eat your eggnog with rum, I find. Kills all that nasty salmonella that might be lingering...
