Homemade Eggnog Kept Cold – Ready to Serve

The economy is screaming “cut back” and “don’t waste,” yet the price of eggnog is making people think twice about a cup of Christmas cheer.  We are excited to share this recipe with those who have the annual Christmas craving, but need to pinch pennies! Here it is!   This may be your first attempt at using your Saratoga Jacks thermal cooker to keep something cold! Have fun! This makes enough for a party and some leftovers to take home!

Our Favorite Non-Alcoholic Eggnog Recipe
Use 8 Fresh Healthy Eggs!
(We only use farm fresh free range eggs.)

Separate the egg yolks into your large thermal cooking pot and put the egg whites into a separate clean dry bowl.  Do not get any egg yolks into your egg whites or it won’t work.

First: in the separate bowl of egg whites add a couple dashes of salt.  Use a clean mixer to whip them for several minutes until they have stiff peaks and it look like white frosting.  Set aside. Second: in the large thermal cooking pot, beat the egg yolks with the mixer while slowly adding:

2/3 cup of sugar
6 cups of Milk
2 cups of heavy whipping cream
5 tsp of vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp of rum extract

Make sure your yolk mixture is creamy and well mixed in the stainless steel cooking pot.  Take the bowl of egg whites you previously set aside and fold them into the mixture. Stir well. Refrigerate the eggnog in the stainless steel cooking pot with the lid on, for a minimum of four hours. When you are ready to go to your party, place your cold cooking pot into the thermal unit and shut the lid. It will maintain its chilled temperatures while transporting unopened for up to six hours. When you open your thermal cooker to serve, stir well, sprinkle nutmeg on top, and enjoy. We recommend placing the ladle on a plate next to the pot so when guests are not pouring themselves a drink, the unit can remain shut. When finished refrigerate leftovers in the stainless steel pot. If refrigerated, leftovers, can be re-stirred and used for up to three days.  For a little variation, when you pour your eggnog in your glass, only fill it two thirds full and top it off with a bit of Sprite or 7-Up.  There are other recipes online that do have alcohol in them, if that is your preference, that cook the egg mixtures and then chill them, if you are worried about salmonella.
