Call me what you will. Perfectionist sounds about right. But if you read my last post on Eggnog Ice Cream, things didn't go exactly how I wanted them to go. Enter: Backup Plan Eggnog Ice Cream. I read somewhere on the internet that you could simply take a carton of eggnog and churn it. I HAD to see this for myself. So I went to Trader Joe's, purchased their brand of eggnog, and went home to try it out. Normally, I wouldn't expect a carton of anything to churn successfully into ice cream, but eggnog shares a lot of similarities with the custard method of making ice cream because it's a creamy drink made with eggs.
Low and behold, the carton of eggnog churned. Too cool!
1-Ingredient Eggnog Ice Cream
Recipe by Marni (well, really, borrowed from the internet)
1 (1-quart) carton of eggnog
Pour the entire contents of the eggnog carton into an ice cream machine and churn until thick. Scoop into a container and set in freezer to harden to your liking. Voila!
