Eggnog Ice Cream Wed, 11/19/03 8:57 PM (permalink)
Does anyone have a recipe for eggnog ice cream using store-bought egg nog? I've gone through a million recipes and it's too complicated cooking up the eggs and letting everything cool. Makes more sense to use the packaged eggnog but I wouldn't know how much of the other ingredients to add. Please help! I'd love to make this for Thanksgiving. Thanks.

    Lizzie,

    As I stated under the forum "How about some creativity" Just a pour good quality egg nogg in the ice cream maker. It already has the cream & eggs in it!!You may want to add a little rum or whatever & a little more nutmeg but you can always grate a little more of that on top of the ice cream. I have done this several times with great success. It's particularly good if you need ice cream to float in the the egg nogg, no warring flavors

      Thanks for the tip. I figured that would work but thought maybe it was necessary to add extra cream and sugar.

        D-mn, OC ! What a great idea! I've never tried that, and I missed your original post.

        As always, my cooking will be improved by you sharing your methods! Thanks!

          I've never added anything extra, you could try a little more sugar if you wanted but no more than 1/2 cup per quart. Check the ingrediants on the container & give a little sip to check for taste. Personally I find adding a little rum does the job of the sugar (keeps it from freezing solid)

            Picked up some Turkey Hill Egg nogg while shopping today. Added a little rum & several grinds of nutmeg & poured it into my krups. Oh Yeah!! real good ice cream.

            LizzieR,
            I checked the ingrediants & it listed sugar second & corn syrup fourth. I figuered that was enough sugar for the ice cream.

              The Thanksgiving eggnog ice cream was a real hit. I did add nutmeg and a little sugar because freezing takes away some of the sweetness.Thanks for the advice.

                Glad it worked for you. When I fixed myself a bowl tonight, I thought the next time I might not put in the extra nutmeg, just wait & fresh grate a little on top of the ice cream in the dish, maybe even on top of some whipped cream on top of the ice cream, Oh My, this is geting out of hand!

                  Bump, because I'm sure there's a lot of leftover egg nog in fridges out there.

                  I am making it now. I added some Blackstrap Rum and a bit of fresh nutmeg.

                    Doesn't the rum (or any liquor for that matter) prevent it from freezing properly?

                      Nope, it froze just fine. I didn't put too much in.

                        The ice Cream in the stores just doesn't have enough egg nog flavor in the ice cream.

                          Store egg nog as ice cream makes sense to me. One of my Grandfather's accounting clients manufactured store brand ice creams in the 50s and 60s. In season he also supplied egg nog. Said the egg nog was nothing but french vanilla base with some rum extract.
