If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Egg Nog (untested)

This recipe is written in handwriting that I think may be Grammy's. I suspect this recipe predates 1952 because of the ingredient "sherry flavoring" (a brandy-fortified wine). Grammy did not consume alcohol after 1952 when she (along with her husband and two older daughters) was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose members do not partake of alcohol in any form.

  • 12 egg yolks
  • 12 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoons sherry flavoring [I'd use a non-alcoholic substitute]
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Beat yolks
  2. Add sugar gradually
  3. Add flavoring and salt
  4. Fold in stiff egg whites
  5. Beat cream stiff and add
  6. Chill before serving

Pin It!
