Homemade Egg Nog is the very best

New Nog
4 eggs
½ cup sugar
¼ t salt
1 quart milk
2 t vanilla
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup rum or bourbon (optional)

In a small bowl beat the eggs, sugar, and salt until combined. Set Aside. In medium saucepan heat milk until hot; remove from heat. Add about one cup of the milk to egg mixture, stirring constantly. Pour mixture into the sauce pan with remaining milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, about five minutes. Do not boil. Stir in vanilla extract. Place pan in bowl with ice water, stir occasionally until cool. Refrigerate until cold, about two hours

Before serving (up to one hour) beat cream into soft peaks, fold into egg-milk mixture. Stir in rum if desired. Just before serving, pour into punch bowl and sprinkle with nutmeg. Makes 12 servings
