I just had my first eggnog of the season. Here in New England it usually shows up for Thanksgiving, then goes away for a few weeks, and then comes back through New Years. I like to see it in the store. Along with those Spanish clemintines, it is a sign of the season.

    Yum! Love eggnog. I bought my first quart last week and finished it all by myself in one night.

      LOL, just bought a bottle of Evan Williams eggnog. Can't wait to crack it open.

        Eggnog is part of the holiday season. I look forward to it every year.

          Does anybody actually make eggnog? I used to as a kid. Well, my mom did, and I remember it being really good. But I would not have a clue how to make it now. I just buy it at the store.

            we look forward to it too... for my kids it's a special treat that comes once a year at the holidays-- they see it on the shelves and go nuts.. of course, i don't let them drink nearly as much as they would like but.... it's a definite prelude to the holidays...

            (not too bad with a little rum in it either-- but not for the kids!! :)

                  The best pre-made egg nog is Pennsylvania Dutch brand, sold in your local liquor store. Anyone who disagrees with me is WRONG. (But, of course, isn't that ALWAYS the case? )

                  I love homemade egg nog, and this is a recipe given to me by a friend over 20 years ago. I'll present it exactly as she wrote it, and you can "interpret" it as you like. I've always had great luck with my own interpretation...

                  Egg Nog

                  6 eggs separated
                  1 pint whipping cream
                  1/2 cup sugar plus to taste
                  nutmeg

                  Beat egg yolks with part of sugar
                  Whip the cream
                  Beat egg whites until stiff with the rest of sugar
                  Mix all and add one quart milk
                  Flavor to taste with liquor and vanilla

                          They get out here just a little. I see the trucks, but little product. Maybe they private label out here in Massachusetts? With the exception of Hood, most of our dairy comes from one of the 2 national producers. For eggnog, the Hood vanilla is ok but I prefer the local Pearsons or Whittier Bros, both farm made products and very local. There is also an outstanding local product that you can only buy on the farm out in Western Mass, but I have forgotten the name.

                            It's also yummy with Brandy, plain or Ginger Brandy come to mind. I'm going out this afternoon and I will have some tonight, thanks to this remonder.

                              I noticed last night that Byrne Dairy has products in the local Target. I have been seeing their trucks around, and now I know why. I didn't see any of their eggnog though. Based on your post, I would have tried it had I seen it.
