As part of our Sint-Niklaas dinner, for the grown-ups, I made Advocaat. This is a potent Dutch zabaglione. Proost!
5 egg yolks
sprinkle of salt
2/3 C organic granulated sugar
3/4 C brandy
Beat the egg yolks, salt and sugar until thickened. Slowly trickle in the brandy, still beating. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and warm over a low heat, continuously whisking. Be patient. If it boils, the alcohol will evaporate. The advocaat is ready when it coats the back of a spoon. Serve the advocaat with a dusting of nutmeg.
