3 large eggs
3 tablespoons Stevia In The Raw Bakers Bag
2 ½ cups milk
1/3 cup brandy
3/4 cup heavy cream

Freshly grated nutmeg

Fill large bowl one-third with ice. Pour in cold water to fill bowl two-thirds full. Set medium metal bowl by stove.

In heavy saucepan, whisk eggs. Add 3 Tbsp Stevia In The Raw and whisk until smooth. Pour in milk and set pot over medium heat. Cook, whisking often, until custard mixture registers 160° F on instant-read thermometer, or custard lightly coats wooden spoon and your finger leaves track along back of spoon. Immediately pour custard into metal bowl and set it into ice water. Whisk until custard is cooled to 85° F or feels cool to your finger. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, 2-24 hours.

To serve, mix brandy into chilled custard. Combine cream and 2 packets Stevia In The Raw in chilled bowl and beat until loosely whipped.

Warm apple cider with cinnamon, star anice and cardamom

Makes 18 Servings

Ingredients

3 cinnamon sticks
2 tablespoons whole cloves
1 tablespoon peppercorns
5 inches fresh ginger root peeled and chunked
Cheesecloth and string
1 medium orange, sliced 1/4 inch thick crosswise
1 lemon, sliced 1/4 inch thick crosswise
1 medium apple, sliced 1/4 inch thick crosswise
2 gallons no added-sugar apple cider
1 cup Stevia In The Raw (you can adjust to taste)

Directions

Wrap the spices and ginger chunks in the cheesecloth and tie off with the string. Mix apple cider, fruit slices, and Stevia in a large pot on the stove or a crock pot on the counter. Add spice pouch. I learned the hard way this makes serving cups of cider so much easier. The last thing you want is to chomp down on a surprise peppercorn or clove!

Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat to simmer for 20 minutes. Turn heat to low and cover right before your guests are scheduled to arrive.

You can use whiskey, bourbon or rum to create a tasty cocktail for the adults at the party. I usually add one shot glass of bourbon to each 8 ounce cupg.

If you have little ones, freeze some of the apple cider into ice cubes. Pop a couple of those into a cup and it will quickly cool down the cider so they don’t burn their mouth.

glass of homemade ginger ale with lemon, lime and ice

Makes 8 Servings

Ingredients

2 liters plain seltzer water
1 tablespoon pressed fresh ginger juice
1 fresh squeezed lemon (medium-sized)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
5 packets Stevia In The Raw®

Directions

Cut small pieces of peeled ginger root and place in a press (like the kind used for garlic). Press ginger root to produce 1 tablespoon of juice and place in small bowl. Add strained lemon juice, vanilla extract and Stevia In The Raw®. Stir to combine.

Open 2-liter bottle of seltzer and pour out ½ cup to make room for soda flavor mixture. Using a funnel, pour mixture into soda bottle and quickly screw on cap.

Careful! The carbonated water will react “explosively” with the ingredients in flavor mixture.

Allow for ingredients to mix with water and for some gas to be released from bottle prior to uncapping – by unscrewing cap just a small amount to hear “hissssss”. Pour over ice and enjoy!
