I have been requested to bring both of the above for turkey day.
Last time I made Egg Nog, it was about 3 gallons till I got it right...argh! So, if you have a recipie that might help, I would appreciate it.

The cider well, Im thinking of just getting some at the store and adding some cinnamon sticks. Any other lovely thoughts for this?

By the way...about 10-12 persons...NON-Alcoholic only
but, ill take alcoholic suggestions for meself for leftovers Smile

thanks!

Hiya!

This is the recipe I used for a bunch of parties last year.
It's really easy, and it's good. You may want to cut this by half, as this makes a bit more than a half gallon Very Happy

Easy Alcohol-free Eggnog

1 vanilla bean
6 eggs
6 tablespoons sugar
3 cups milk
3 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Split the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds, set aside.
In a bowl over simmering water, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla bean seeds. Keep whisking until a ribbon is formed and the mixture has been heated to 140 degrees. Hold it at this temperature for a couple of minutes, and allow the mixture to thicken. Add the cinnamon and stir into the milk. Refrigerate this until cold. Whip the cream to medium stiff and add it to the egg mixture. Sprinkle the top with the mace before serving.

By the way, does anyone happen to know the distinction between apple cider and apple juice? I've often wondered.

Hi Roger,
Apple Juice is cider that has been filtered to remove all of the pulp.

For Eggnog, I use a couple gallons of good prepared dairy eggnog.
To that, I add 1 Pint Each:
Decent Brandy
Dark Rum
Good, but not extravagant Scotch
Jack Daniels or Jim Beam

To serve, it is ladled into a cup, topped with fresh whipped cream, and dusted with nutmeg and cinnamon.


As for cider, a simple recipe for spiced cider is to add a couple tablespoons or so of Apple Pie Spice (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and coriander) per gallon jug of commercial cider a few days before the party. Shake the jug a few times a day to redistribute the spices. On party day, pour the concoction through a coffee filter to strain off the spice residue. Chill well, serve from a punchbowl floated with a few cinnamon sticks and thin-sliced orange rounds studded with cloves. A quart or so of Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum goes well with this for those so inclined.
