I fondly remember my grandmother making homemade eggnog. She used raw eggs, milk, cream and freshly grated nutmeg. I was ga ga for the stuff. Because I’d had the real deal as a kid, anytime I purchased a carton of the store bought stuff I was sorely disappointed. I imagine if I had grown up drinking the carton kind I would have loved that too – but to me it wasn’t grandma’s eggnog. I was delighted to discover that Strafford’s Eggnog tastes practically identical to Grandma Marion’s!
