Welcome Yule Party

Come join the fun on Facebook or post something here about your favorite holiday activity. Here’s my post about eggnog:

Eggnog! It’s great stuff, even if it’s bad for us. A leeetle bit won’t hurt much, right? My Rick has the most awesome recipe for eggnog. The full recipe fills a punch bowl. We put the recipe into a spreadsheet where we just plug in the number of servings we want and presto! Out pops the correct measurements of everything. Here’s the full thing, which makes about 34 5 oz servings. We also make a non-alcoholic version for the non-drinkers.

Southern Eggnog

18 eggs, separated
2 cups fine, granulated sugar
2 fifths Bourbon
1/2 cup Jamaican rum
2 cups light cream (half and half)
6 cups heavy cream, whipped

Beat egg yolks until light. Gradually add sugar and beat until yolks are thick and light in color. Slowly stir in bourbon and rum. Add the chilled light cream. Lightly fold in the whipped heavy cream. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into mixture. Pour into punch bowl and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.

Wish I had a picture to show you, but I haven’t made it yet this year. Sorry!

  1. My biggest holiday responsibility is making sure I get the gingerbread cookies made. Between supplying friends and family I’ll probably make 7 dozen before the end of the year. My mom started the tradition with a magazine recipe she found for Jolly Gingerbread Men in the early 1960s. We’ve moved all over the country – and shared the cookies wherever we’ve gone!
