Homemade, Classic Eggnog: A simple recipe that you can customize to your  tastes | CBC Life

Homemade Eggnog:  (makes 1 1/2 quarts)

  • 5 egg yolks*
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cups good quality bourbon or whiskey*
  • 1/4 cup spiced rum*
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg plus more for garnish

2. Add cream, milk,
*bourbon and *rum and stir to combine.
3. Stir in nutmeg and vanilla and chill well.
4. Serve chilled on the rocks with a sprinkle of nutmeg if desired.

*Cook the eggs:

Making a danger-free eggnog is pretty easy too. Simply follow the same recipe above, but leave out the alcohol and mix only half the milk and cream into the blend, then heat the mixture in a glass or metal bowl over a pot of simmering water for about five or six minutes. Be sure to stir constantly. Refrigerate until well chilled.
When ready to serve, simply stir in the remaining cream and milk, as well as the bourbon and rum.

* Virgin Eggnog

Follow the recipe as directed, omitting the alcohol and adding an extra 3/4 cup of whole milk, 3/4 cup of cream and 1-2 tablespoons of rum extract to the mix.  Chill and serve.

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until browned. Remove from muffin cups to cool. Serve warm

Market inspired recipe(s): Peaches!!!

by Jerome Farmers Market, September 23, 2011
peach-ginger-blueberry cobbler

A childhood friend of mine from Northern California began a fabulous cooking blog a few years back.  She has a plethora of scrumptious recipes.  
Her blog is called:
and if you want some fun recipes, this is the place to look!


7 cups peaches (peeled, sliced and chunked)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt

(i added about 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg and cloves. and about 1 tsp. fresh ginger.)

Mix together and put in a 9x13 pan.

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter, softened
1 egg

mix topping ingredients together and spoon over peach filling.

bake 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until the topping is browned and thoroughly cooked. You
could top with ice cream, or english custard like i did.

     Dutch-oven Peach Cobbler

Filling -
4 cups of ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Batter -
6 tablespoons of butter, cut into pieces
1 1/4 cups of Flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup of buttermilk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of brown sugar

**remember, i adapted this recipe for my dutch oven. so this original recipe was meant for an
8x8 pan. so, if you use a dutch oven, just substitute that for the 8x8 parts.**

Preheat oven to 350 (i did 325° to be safe with the dutch oven). Combine the 3 ingredients in
the filling and set aside. In an 8 inch baking dish place the butter pieces and place in the oven
until the butter melts. While it is melting combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon
in a bowl. In another bowl mix together the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add the buttermilk mixture
to the flour mixture and mix until everything is moistened. Remove the pan from the oven and spoon
the batter over the
butter spreading evenly but not stiring. Spoon the filling over the top and gently press in the peaches.
Bake for 35-40 minutes and then sprinkle with brown sugar (i doubled the amount of sugar for good
measure) and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the crust is golden.

by Jerome Farmers Market, September 09, 2011

If you live in or around Idaho and have not visited the Healing Fields at Crossraods Point Business Center then take a drive this weekend to go see them.  It is a... "breathtaking display of patriotism and unity." 

The Healing Field is a memorial at Crossroads Point Business Center dedicated to the lives lost in the attacks on the Twin Towers in 2001.  

3000 flags standing 8 feet tall in perfect rows line the field at Crossroads Point.  This display will be going on through the weekend so go take a look, take pictures and be proud to be an American.

For more information on the Healing Field and to get directions to this location please visit the Crossroads Point Business Center's webpage HERE.

It's a parade!

by Jerome Farmers Market, August 11, 2011
Yesterday we had the wonderful opportunity of participating in the Jerome County Fair and Rodeo parade!  

Here are some of the 'good enough to eat' paper mache fruits and veggies made by our dear friend Lorna Irwin.

 The sign was wonderful and despite the heat we walked our float through the parade.  We are so grateful to the Bartholomew, Gerstner, Ricketts and Carpenter families for all your help and support!

Below is a picture of the float and sweet Grandma Capps with her great grandchildren.

USDA Farmers Market in Washington DC

by Jerome Farmers Market, July 30, 2011
We just returned from our visit to Washington DC.  While there we visited the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) sponsored farmers market at the Smithsonian in Washington DC.  It was a spectacular event and so fun to see tourists, residents and district workers alike walking up and down the streets with their bags of fresh produce, veggies and the oh-so-popular kettle corn.

The fruit was ripe and delicious and included cherries, blackberries, grapes, apples and much much more.

  The veggies were equally delicious and abundant.  Kids were walking down the sidewalks at the Smithsonian eating gigantic fresh carrots!

  Not only did they have produce, but they also had these homemade soaps.  

It was a wonderful experience.  

 The Farmers Market at Crossroads Point Business Center will soon be USDA Registered and nationally recognized. 

We're growing the green stuff!

by Jerome Farmers Market, July 17, 2011
Seeds have been planted, the sun has been shining and the sprinklers are on!  Grass should be here soon in preparation for the Farmers Market that will take place on the 2.4 acres of land at the Crossroads Point Business Center.
