Louise Brubaker Cullers' Generational Family Egg Nog
This egg nog has been prepared for generations
of holidays in my family. My first remembrance was as a child seeing
my mother and great uncle debating and discussing as to when the
brandy was right to the taste. It usually became stronger after my
mother's back was turned, diverted by a remark from uncle. After the
passing of my great uncle, the ancestral Biedler homestead "The
Locust" was sold, but the egg nog recipe as well as some of the
family heirlooms remain in the keeping of the younger generation.
Each holiday, the egg nog is made, family
stories of the past are told and kept alive and reinforced for the
- 1 dozen eggs, separated
- 2 to 3 quarts heavy cream
- 1 quart whole milk
- Apple brandy (to taste!)
Break up the egg yolks in a mixing bowl; as you
beat them, pour in a steady stream of brandy. This will cook the yolks
and form a custard. After this process, mix in the heavy whipping
cream and milk (or 4 quarts of half & half). Stir in the mixture
well and begin adding apple brandy according to taste. Also add sugar
Just before serving, whip the 12 egg whites into a
foam. Use an iron skillet and pour in enough milk to float the eggs.
Heat the milk to near boiling (do not let boil) then pour in the
foamed egg whites. Let stand until they are puff balls. Be sure at no
time the boiling process takes place. Pour this mixture on top of the
punch bowl of egg nog.
