Ever wonder what’s in eggnog? My son ventured a guess: It must be eggs, and…nog. This all natural holiday eggnog recipe blends organic, free range eggs and pure cane sugar with raw cream and milk. No nog, and no artificial thickeners or additives! Our family has enjoyed eggnog for years, but now that we’ve tried making it from scratch we won’t be going back to the store-bought stuff any time soon. Real eggnog is so rich, creamy and flavorful!
Free range, organic eggs are the base for eggnog. The fresher, the better! Organic cane sugar or Rapadura, organic raw milk, cream, fresh nutmeg and spices finish the recipe.
To prepare the eggnog, separate the eggs and add the sugar to the yolks. Beat them on high until they become thick and light in color…this takes awhile, but makes all the difference! In a different bowl, beat the whites with a little sugar until stiff peaks form. At this point, you can choose to keep your milk and cream raw, or heat it to reduce any risk of salmonella from the eggs. Mix the spices with the milk and cream, then combine the egg yolks with the milk mixture.
Fold the egg whites into the eggnog mixture and mix well. That’s all! Perfect for a holiday gathering, or sipping by the fire while the snow falls outside.
