White Chocolate Egg Nog

Maggie May Schill


When I told people I was going to be making egg nog this year I got a lot of people replying with horror. Some people said "AHhh, you can't feed people raw eggs!!" Others said "the stuff you get in the stores has been pasteurize, you just can't serve raw eggs to people." Both these statements are highly irritating.

1- The stuff in the stores is not pasteurized specially after the milk and eggs are made into nog form.
2- Egg nog doesn't contain raw eggs... at least not how I've ever made it.

The eggs are cooked in a tempering process which I will describe below.
