    Countrywife's Note:

    I got this recipe from my favorite literature teacher many, many moons ago, even before the concerns about raw egg yolks. There were so few people in the class, just enough to keep from being cancelled, that we'd usually meet at her home and drink tea and someone would bring cookies. During the holidays she made this for us. I've made eggnog from this recipe for years, especially since we shouldn't use raw eggs.

      I haven't used this recipe but I make a cooked eggnog and have for 40 years. THis is what I do different. I mix egg yolks and sugar in top of double boiler over medium heat. I whisk this till lemon colored and mixture is thick. It changes after a few minutes, but doesn't take long. then I follow the rest of the recipe. Mine is a litlle different, but the method works great. I don't use the whites. I have started using fat free cool whip instead of cream. I have never had the need to blend mine.

      This tasted exactly like real, raw-egg, eggnog. Mmmm! However, the custard broke a little despite very gentle heating and diligent stirring. I don't know if using a thermometer would have helped that or not. In any case, that made for an odd texture. I added a pinch of nutmeg to the custard as it cooked since my family always had nutmeg both in the eggnog and on top of it.
