    4 Cups milk
    Pinch of ground cloves
    1/2 Teaspoon + 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
    18 egg yolks
    1 1/2 Cups sugar
    4 cups half & half
    1/2 Teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Note: Scramble the egg whites and feed them back to your chickens!

    Cooking Instructions:

    1. Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla and cinnamon in a large saucepan. Heat at medium heat and slowly bring to a boil; stir continuously.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Beat together until sugar is dissolved and mixture is frothy.
    3. Slowly whisk hot milk mixture into the bowl with the yolks (this heats up the yolks without scrambling them).
    4. Pour mixture back into large saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stir constantly for 6-7 minutes, or until thick. Do not allow mixture to boil.
    5. Pour hot mixture back into mixing bowl and let cool for about 1 hour.
    6. Stir in half & half, 2 Teaspoons vanilla and nutmeg.
    7. Refrigerate overnight before serving. Stir before serving.

    Makes 1/2 gallon

    Note: This makes a delicious coffee creamer!

    Eggnog has never been one of my favorite things. But I'm going to try this one. Might be the one that gets me off the fence about it. I think instead of using the whites for scrambled eggs, I'll just make the world's giantest meringue!

    @Sueg4332 if you like rum or brandy in your 'nog, go for it. We don't care for the taste of it in ours. Personalize it how you wish!
