We know that it's not even December, but we can't help but crave some eggnog. And here's a recipe so you can skip the grocery version and mke it yourself.

Here's what you need:

6 eggs

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 cups milk, divided

1 teaspoon vanilla 

Beat eggs, sugar and salt in large heavy saucepan until blended.

Stir in 2 cups milk.

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly but gently, until mixture is thick  enough to just coat a metal spoon with a thin film, or about 15 minutes.

Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat immediately.

Stir in remaining 2 cups milk and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until  thoroughly chilled, several hours or overnight.

Thank you ever so much for bringing back a little bit of my mom. I have been looking for this for a long time. It is the same way my mom made it. Thank you. And God Bless.
