This is something that you don't want to cook on very high heat. If you cook it too fast, it'll be very lumpy or almost a curdled texture. This is supposed to be a smooth, creamy, luscious drink. Cook slowly. This can be served at a party or gathering from a punch bowl. Store in refrigerator till ready till use & refrigerate any leftovers in a covered container. We use a rinsed out milk jug.

Can also put a light sprinkle of nutmeg, if not spiked with alcohol. But not together, ti's just "too" much.

(I also put on the submission about how to cook this, but it didn't list my name. Just wanted Maryeileen to know it was me that answered her. Terri (badwater)

Thanks, Terri....I'm guessing it'll take about 1/2 hour?
