Hot Buttered RUM RUM RUM (without so much sodomy and the lash)


(This is purely medicinal, of course.)

(This recipe ALSO serves 15 people optimally, or four really 'sick' people who need a lot of medicine.)

You will need:

  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (Use real butter, you wuss -- damn the hardened arteries, and full steam ahead!)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 sticks cinnamon
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups rum (Use GOOD rum. Seriously -- it makes all the difference.)
  • heavy cream -- whipped (You can settle for Reddi-whip, but it isn't the same.)
  • ground nutmeg -- for topping
To prepare:

Put all ingredients, except the rum, cream and the nutmeg into the crotchpot.
Add 2 quarts of hot water.
Stir well.
Cover pot and cook on LOW for FIVE hours.
Add rum; stir to blend.

Serve from pot in warm mugs with a scoop of whipped cream and a dusting of nutmeg.
You can garnish with a cinnamon stick, if you want.

Funny thing is, I thought only "bread-things" came out of "crotch pots." :)
