Homemade Eggnog with Fresh Nutmeg

Recipe and photo by Cheryl Paff, AttheFarmersMarket.com

Ingredients:
4 Eggs 
1/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup 
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract 
1 Quart Whole Milk 
Fresh Nutmeg 
Bourbon - Optional

Directions:
Separate the egg yolks and whites. Beat the yolks with the maple syrup and vanilla. Beat the milk into the egg yolk mixture. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy and pour them into the bowl with the milk. Beat to incorporate. At this point, you can either grate some fresh nutmeg into the batch or wait and allow guests to grate the nutmeg into their glass themselves 

Optional: If you like your eggnog with a little kick, add a little bourbon. 

* Please see USDA information about the consumption of raw eggs.
