I was browsing through a very old cookbook just yesterday and came across this information in reference to eggnog which I would like to share with you.
Eggnog starts the year and finishes it. It is the beverage of friendship and good wishes, of certain ceremony, too. When eggnogs were invented, centuries ago, they were served at any time of the year. Later, they became an important holiday drink, particularly popular on Christmas, NewYear’s, Easter, Independence Day, and – in early American years – election day.
Our recipes include eggnogs that may be mixed with spirits and some that need no fortifying at all. Even a child can drink them! A word here about dairy eggnogs: They are quick and excellent.
McCalls CookBook the chapter on Beverages of the 1950s. The Eggnog recipes listed in the cookbook were Coffee Eggnog, English Eggnog and Spicy Eggnog. The Coffee and Spicy Eggnog recipes are the two included with no rum.
Here is the recipe for English Eggnog
Makes about 3½ quarts
6 egg yolks
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light rum
2 quart light cream
6 egg whites
½ cup confectioners’ sugar
1. In large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until light.
2. Slowly stir in cognac and rum. Add 1 ½ quarts cream and about half the egg whites, beating until very well combined.
3. Beat remaining egg whites until foamy. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until soft peaks form when beater is slowly raised.
4. Gently stir egg whites and remaining cream into egg-yolk mixture.
5. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
