I used to purchase holiday nog from the grocery store. A few years ago, a friend sent me some Colonial Custard from a local dairy. When the dairy closed I was left to my own devices. I came up with this recipe. Keep in mind the ingredients are simple, the directions are a bit more complicated.
You will need a candy thermometer. Don’t be intimidated. It is more afraid of you than you are of it.
Here is a tip for you.
Sometimes your thermometer is old and my not be working correctly. Water boils to 212 degrees F so if you put your thermometer in a pot of boiling water and it doesn’t register to 212 then you need to adjust or purchase a new one.
Peace be with you,
