The reason that I first got dairy goats was so that we could have a source of healthy, raw milk. Later on I would use this milk to create our goat milk soap and launch Goat Milk Stuff. But in the beginning, the goat milk was simply a food source. We drank it, we made cheese and yogurt with it, we cooked and baked with it. But one of our favorite things to do with the goat milk is make goat milk egg nog. In this video, Emery shows you how it’s done:
- 4 cups fresh goat milk
- 4 egg yolks*
- 1/4 cup sugar
- nutmeg to sprinkle on top (optional)
*Raw egg yolks are at risk of carrying salmonella. We only use our own eggs that we know are clean and come from healthy, free range chickens. We would not use eggs from the grocery store.
The boys work hard to keep our goats and our chickens healthy, but occasionally they do complain about the extra chores the animals bring. As a homeschooling mom, I am quick to point out that without the goats and chickens, there would be no egg nog. (They quickly agree the extra chores are worth it.)
You’re never too young to internalize that hard work produces tangible rewards. [Click to Tweet]
Does anybody else make their own egg nog?
