Just in time for the New Year:
One holiday task that can be taken care of early is the egg nog, if you trust a recipe that showed up in Box No. 87 of the Library of Congress Manuscript Division's Harlan Fiske Stone Papers.
Stone, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1941 to 1946, hosted an annual New Year's Eve reception, and although he was better known as a wine connoisseur, his way with egg nog has survived.
Here’s the recipe. Powerful stuff.
Happy New Year’s Eve!
