Homemade eggnog – a forgotten Personal Kitchen Challenge!

Homemade Eggnog

Homemade Eggnog

Oh my gosh, you guys, I completely forgot I did this challenge!  At Christmas, I had a real hankering for eggnog.  For whatever reason, I thought we couldn’t get it here…I didn’t even bother to look.  Instead, I decided to make my own!

Most recipes for eggnog call for raw eggs, which I don’t really have a problem with.  However, I was planning on serving it to others, and the last thing I wanted to do was chance getting other people sick from raw eggs!  So I followed this recipe from Epicurean Mom, which calls for the eggs to be par-cooked.

You guys, this eggnog was so freaking good!  I just wanted to drink all of it myself and not share.  But I was good, and filled a 2 liter Coke bottle (cleaned, I swear) to take to Christmas dinner with friends, and kept the rest for us.  Everyone loved it!

As it turns out,  they do apparently sell eggnog here in Finland, as someone said they saw it at the grocery store.  But I don’t care – I’ll be making another batch (or two!) of homemade eggnog this year.

  1. Hah, I did the same this last Christmas. I used an Alton Brown recipe and substituted Captain Morgan. I was in heaven! Even if I were back in America, there’s no way I would go out and buy egg nog again. Making my own was so delicious.

    • Yeah, if I were back in the States, I’d probably still buy store-bought. But I’d also probably make a batch of the “good stuff” for a special occasion! 🙂
