The recipe didn't mention that you are supposed to stir the mixture while boiling. I found that out reading reviews of the recipe. I always dock a recipe ratings points for leaving out ANYTHING. Since I don't read minds, to me that is inexcusable.
Having said that, I followed the recipe too a T. The only thing I changed was using rum instead of vanilla, and halved the nutmeg and cinnamon as suggested by others, which should have no affect on the outcome, other than the taste. What I ended up with was a crumbly mess. The only thing I can think of that would've caused that, would be that I boiled it too long. But since the recipe doesn't state how long to boil it, see above comments, I had to go by others reviews and boiled it for 5 minutes. I sampled some of the crumbly mess, and it doesn't taste like egg nog at all.
