Drinking eggnog on Xmas eve is a tradition for me. We usually make it at home, but obviously that is a no-no this year due to the raw egg. My first question is: is eggnog in that cartons you buy at the supermarket safe to drink? I'm guessing the pasteurisation process kills the bacteria, so it'd be ok, but i wanted to check.
My second question is about Christmas ham. Are the rules for that the same as for sliced deli ham? I'm talking about a big leg (or similar) that is sliced at home and eaten cold. I love Christmas ham so much! Maybe I'll just have to heat it up or something. Has anyone heard anything about this?
