Raw Homemade Eggnog

Just in time for the holiday season (literally "just in time"), a recipe for homemade eggnog! Super easy to make and even better to drink, this eggnog is made with the tastiest of ingredients.
Note:  This recipe yields more than a blender-ful of eggnog! If you'd like a smaller batch, just cut all of the ingredients in half. I am taking mine to a party, so I am thinking I might need a lot. :)

Raw Homemade Eggnog

6 c. cream from pastured animals (set aside 2 cups), preferably raw
2 c. milk from pastured animals, preferably raw
8 egg yolks (save whites for other uses, like meringues!)
1/2 c. pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla powder
3 1/2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
pinch cloves
pinch cinnamon
pinch sea salt
3/4 c. good whiskey, bourbon, or brandy (optional)

Add all ingredients to blender (except remaining 2 c. cream and optional booze) and blend until thoroughly mixed and egg yolks are assimilated.  Pour into large container (I used an 80 oz. glass jar) and add remaining 2 c. cream and 3/4 c. optional alcohol.  Whisk until combined.  Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Enjoy this delightful holiday beverage with family, friends, and all else you care to share your love with.
