Egg Nog

Makes one Quart

1/3 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups milk
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Brandy or Rum (optional)
Nutmeg (optional)

Beat 1/3 cup sugar into yolks until creamy. Add salt and stir in milk. Cook over medium heat until mixture coats spoon (this is the part I believe is suppose to make it thick and is also the part where I burn the eggs). Let cool. 
Beat egg whites till foamy. Add 3 tablespoons sugar. Beat to soft peaks. Add to custard. Mix together. Add vanilla and liquor (if desired). Stir together. Chill 3 or 4 hours. Serve with a sprinkle of nutmeg (if desired). 
Enjoy :)
