  • About

A friend, Leo Byam, gave me this excellent recipe for the traditional holiday eggnog. It is supposed to keep, if refrigerated, but I have never found that anyone gave it a chance.


  • 6 medium eggs
  • 2 8 oz. tins sweetened condensed milk
  • Grated peel


Beat the eggs slightly in a large bowl. Add all the other ingredients, except the rum, and mix well. Add the rum, mixing thoroughly. Serve over crushed ice in punch cups.
