4 cups milk
4 cups cream
3 cups light rum (optional)
1¾ cups sugar
2½ teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a saucepan, blend milk, cinnamon, cloves, and ½ teaspoon of vanilla over low heat. Stir, and remove from heat just before boiling.

Combine sugar and egg yolks in a medium size bowl, whisk until light and fluffy.

Slowly add the milk mixture, a little at a time, while continuing to whisk.
