I started a batch of egg nog a little while ago, my first ever I've made. It's been sitting in the fridge doing it's thing and last night hit the 3 week mark, the safe point where all of the bacteria should have been killed off by the alcohol. Fittingly, it was also the first snow we've seen so I poured us a glass full after dinner. Grated a little cinnamon on top and boy what a decadent treat home made nog is....a whole different ball game than the overly sweet goofy stuff found in the grocery.
Anyone else make their own nog?
- think that I tried 'egg nog' as a kid but must have been the phony non-alcoholic type - SO, never had the real thing!
For us, Susan decided to make her famous 'Jewish' Matzo Ball Chicken Soup
- auctions this off yearly at our Unitarian Fellowship (a lot of former Jews there -
) - trick is to make the matzo balls from scratch and from her experience takes a number of attempts to get them the right size so each is fluffy, tender, and soaked perfectly w/ the broth - delicious! Dave
