How to Make Eggnog

Old Fashioned Country Eggnog Recipe

Eggnog made from scratch is a very digestible beverage that is traditionally served at Christmas time or New Years.

While eggnog may be a popular Holiday beverage, it is also an excellent food source for someone recovering from illness, in cancer recovery, or for someone suffering the effects of chemotherapy treatments.

Home made eggnog is high in nourishing calories; it is nutrient dense being high in calcium, Vitamin A, protein, and more. So, so as festive as it may be, eggnog is actually a very healthful food as well!

At Quaker Farm, we make old fashioned eggnog with raw milk, cream, free range eggs and natural flavors using the recipe below. For more detailed instructions, watch the video cooking class above about how to make home made eggnog.

Eggnog Recipe and Instructions:

4 fresh, free range farm chicken eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 teaspoon pure orange extract
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
3 cups whole raw milk
1 cup half & half

  • Beat until there is no separation of the whites & yolks. Pour the beaten eggs into a 2 quart wide mouth mason jar.
  • Add 1/2 cup of sugar or 1/4 cup of honey.
  • Pour in 1 cup of milk, We use whole raw goat milk. Cow milk may be used instead, or you may also use low-fat milk or a milk substitute as well.
  • Add vanilla, pure almond extract, orange extract and nutmeg.
  • Put the lid snugly on the jar and shake well until everything is blended smoothly together.
  • Then pour the mixture into a chilled serving pitcher and add half and half and 2 more cups of milk.
