OK, its drinkable. At brief moments in almost passes as egg-nog. Its too thin and I got a little curding in mine. Not much, I would strain it out if there was anymore but its fine. Its similar to a custard that hasnt set-up (firmed up) yet, but wont ever.

Bottom line, I wouldnt make this recipe again. Sorry Don! Maybe it could use some heavy whipping cheam to be thicker, or maybe just a thickening agent. Im gonna buy the real deal at the store later. LOL!

Should I throw some soy sauce in it???

If it curdled (curded?), then you probably raised the heat too quickly. That happened with me when I made a big batch of it for a gathering we had here a few weeks ago. I would have strained it too, but didn't have anything on hand, so I just left it as is.

It certainly isn't like store bought eggnog, different taste & definitely not the same consistancy...but I like the novelty of making a yummy holiday treat and the kids liked drinking it warm.

Don't worry, I'm not offended....I've since purchased store bought eggnog. Twice.

Oh, and soy sauce?

yeah, I never went hotter than 160*, but there was a brief moment when I gave it a blast of heat to get it going.

We had a customer at the shop last night buying bottles and corks and stuff for his egg nog. He was over-the-top excited about his recipe and swears by it. He said he would email the recipe but of course hasnt.

The grocery store stuff is too thick and sweet for me. I'll drink it as coffee creamer, but straight or with a normal amount of booze is too sticky. A friend whose family raised the meat and eggs they sold in their grocery store told me they had egg nog every morning for breakfast. I think they had a dairy operation on the farm, too.

Don your egg nog is growing on me. Its a little more egg-noggy today. I think with another dose of nutmeg it might not be too bad!

That guy emailed me, here is the recipe he was raving about.
