Topic: About Eggs (was Re: +Eggnog with... Costa Rican Tarrazu) (5 msgs / 185 lines)
1) From: Dan Bollinger
About eggs: My former father-in-law was a Prof. of Toxicology and
Pharmacology.  He says that eggs contain an enzyme that is not a good for
humans.  He wouldn't even feed raw eggs to the Border Collies he trains.
Eggs in eggnog should be whipped into the milk and the mixture scalded.
That will convert the enzyme to something safe.  Chill the mixture to drink.
This has the added benefit of adding a silky body and richness to the drink.

Another way to do it is to hold back half the milk and cook as a 
custard and then thin into a drink with the remaining milk.  Makes it 
much smoother and safe too.

I consume many things "not good for humans" ;)  What exactly is it about
eggs that is not good and how is it not good?  Would a large amount of
alcohol help?
I'm willing to try it, but now eggnog has to be planned, whereas before I
just whipped it up and served.
Thanks for the tips!

I just use egg yolks, not the whole egg, in my eggnog.

I think that the alcohol cuts the cholesterol and renders it harmless.  
At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  :)
