Eggnog History

I absolutely love egg nog; as soon as I see it in the refrigerated cases at the grocery store, I get a holiday thrill. (Earlier and earlier it seems!) I’ve been meaning to make my own from scratch for some time, and this brief history of egg nog post has me inspired. It’s fascinating how much it has been shaped by supply over time–I didn’t realize how scarce milk was for ordinary people in Victorian England! Read through the end of the post for links to a few tasty-sounding recipes. (Note: this isn’t from a crafting blog, but I stumbled upon the post and thought you’d enjoy it.)

    I like Joy of Cooking’s Eggnog in Quantity recipe. Easy, cheap (ish – it uses evaporated milk rather than cream, and you can use low-fat or skim it fine), and very tasty. I don’t drink, so don’t add anything, but you can spike it to your taste just before drinking and it’s delicious, I’m told.
