December 15, 2010 I I rood i STONE COUNTY ENTERPRISE 9. When the month of December rolls around, I tend to get antsy. No, not for the Christmas holidays, decorating the Christmas tree, or receiving gifts, no, I get excited for something much sweeter than all that ....... EGGNOG. That's right, good old eggnog. Eggnog is the friend you can sit down and watch a college football game with. This friend doesn't com- plain, ask crazy questions, or make a mess. This friend is so enjoyable around the holiday's that some people tend to keep him around even into the summer months. For some, eggnog is the gift that keeps on giving the whole year. You could say Eggnog Eggnog that eggnog is the ultimate holiday treat. Years ago eggnog was made with sherD', eggs, and milk. This concoction didn't really have a regular name. Back then it was stowed at Taverns during Colonial times dur- ing the eotd months and on holidays as a celebratory," drink. The drink itself was served in stout mugs called "noggins". The paying public would just ask for a noggin, and over the years this "egg" based drink sloMy acquired the name eggnog. Now there are several commercial brands of Pumpkin Shake French Toast eggnog. The TG Lee brand of eggnog happens to be my personal favorite, with Borden a close second. Nonny Brook Farms makes the best eggnog that nmney can buy, but it is only" made three months out of the year and is found only at Whole Foods grocery" Egg Nog Recipe Ingredients 4 cups milk 5 whole cloves 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract I teaspoon ground cin- namon v) egg yolks 1 1/2 cups sugar 4 cups light cream 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg Directions 1. Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, stores in a few of the larger cities around. In culinary school we made a pretty good home- made eggnog. I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of rum in my eggnog, even though it is quite popular. To me it takes away from the sweetness of the eggnog. I personally love to add large amounts of nutmeg to my eggnog. In my opinion you just can't put enough nutmeg in eggnog....I love the stuff. So I've included the recipe for my culi- nary school's homemade eggnog....pretty tastT. What many people don't realize is that eggnog can and heat over lowest set- ting for 5 minutes. Slowly bring milk mixture to a boil. 2. In a large bowl, com- bine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until fluffy. Whisk hot milk mixture slowly into the eggs. Pour mixture into saucepan.

It really helps liven up the flavors in things such as French toast, ice cream shakes, nmffins, and cakes. That hint of sweet rangi- ness really helps put baked dishes and bread puddings over the top. There are many food sites and cookbooks on the internet, during the holi- days, that provide many" old and new ways of incor- porating eggnog into main- stream dishes, desserts, and baked goods. The fol- lowing recipes are just a few of my favorites that I have tweaked to fit my own personal tastes.
