"It's taken me several years to perfect this recipe. Now everyone asks, 'When are you making the eggnog?!' This uses cooked eggs for safety, and you can use more or less rum to taste. It's a bit of work to make, but well worth it. You'll never buy store-bought eggnog again! Enjoy!"

  2. 5 whole cloves

  3. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  7. 2 1/2 cups light rum

  8. 4 cups light cream

  1. Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting for 5 minutes. Slowly bring milk mixture to a boil.
