Homemade Eggnog
  1. In a medium pot, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, salt, and milk.
  2. Place pot over medium-low heat and cook, stirring or whisking constantly until the mixture thickens slightly to the texture of heavy cream. This should take about 10 minutes.
  3. Strain the mixture through a sieve into a shallow metal bowl and let it cool, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the vanilla and nutmeg, and pour the mixture into a jar or container with a lid.
  5. Place in the refridgerator to chill thoroughly.
  6. Meanwhile, using an electric beater, or a balloon whisk, whip whipping cream until soft peaks form and stir into the chilled egg mixture.
  7. Pour over ice to serve, and add some rum if you want!
