Ok, we’re coming to that time of the year when livers are taxed and belts are loosened. Here’s a recipe from knobcreek.com which I shamelessly reprint here so I will remember it later. Do check out the Knob Creek site though…
- 6 large egg yolks
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 ½ cups milk
- ½ cup Knob Creek (ahem) Bourbon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
Beat egg yolks and sugar in medium saucepan. Slowly beat in 2 cups of the milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thermometer registers 150°F or mixture coats the back of the metal spoon. Remove from heat. Strain into pitcher. Stir in remaining milk, Knob Creek Bourbon, vanilla and nutmeg. Cover and chill at least 8 hours or overnight. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg. Makes 6-8 servings.
