Egg Nog Ice Cream

On Friday (June 25th) we celebrated Half Christmas! Weird you might say? No no, it's awesome! It was complete with Christmas music and all (okay we didn't put the tree up or anything but still!) I really wanted egg nog, but have you ever tried to find egg nog in the store in June? It's impossible! So I improvised...
I decided to make homemade egg nog and I thought it would be fun to make it into ice cream since it is summer after all! :)
Egg Nog Ice Cream
4 eggs, room temperature
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 c. cream
3 c. milk
2 t. rum flavoring
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan with a wire whisk to make sure eggs are well incorporated. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches about 160 degrees F. Mixture will look like this (excuse my poor excuse for a whisk):
Pour mixture into a bowl, cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight. Stir, and then freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. And voila:
This was the perfect treat for our Half Christmas celebration...or anytime!! Enjoy.
