Another treat for an all liquid diet – this one hails from my good friend, Barb, who, along with her husband care for great cows which produce awesome milk from their nearly 100% grassfed diet.
4 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar or 1/4 cup real honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp vanilla
Heat milk to 160 degrees (about steaming)over medium heat. Add one cup hot milk to egg yolks, then blend into the remaining milk. Remain vigilant and/or whisk often to keep it from sticking and burning to the bottom of the pot. Add sugar (or honey) and spices, then reheat. This is great warm or cold.
As always, use organic, fresh, local whenever possible.
Jerry really likes this and it’s packed with calories and fat, which is important for him right now. He warms up a cup of eggnog if he has trouble falling asleep or for brekkie in the morning with his softened cereal.
