    James Wong’s recipes will calm and sooth the stress that comes with
    Christmas. There’s also a little something to alleviate the often
    embarrassing effects of over-indulgence at your Christmas feast or
    Christmas Party!

    SOOTH YOUR STRESS

    Anti-anxiety Saffron Eggnog

    Saffron comprises a mix of active ingredients such as Crocins and
    Safranal, which are thought to have an anti-depressant effect and help
    ease anxiety. James Wong’s Saffron Eggnog is the ideal stress soother for
    the busy festive season.

    Method

    1. Pour 500ml milk into a saucepan.
    2. Add 3 pinches of saffron, two bay leaves and two dried orange segments.
    3. As the liquid simmers, add 3tbsps of golden syrup, 200mL cream.
    4. Simmer for 10 minutes until the saffron has infused the milk.
    5. Fish out the orange and bay leaves.
    6. In a bowl, break three eggs and whisk saffron mixture into it.
    7. Place bowl over a saucepan with water and stir continuously until it
    thickens to a custardy consistency.
    8. Remove from the heat, pour into a jug and allow to cool.
    9. Then add 150ml white rum.
    10. Bottle and fridge the eggnog for 8 hours.
    11. Serve in small glasses, with a sprinkle of grated nutmeg.

    A good friend would drive 30 miles at 2:00 am to bail you out of jail.
    A best friend, however, would be sitting in the cell next to you saying
    "Man, that was f******n Awesome!"

    That's odd; I've never seen anyone calmed down by saffron. Quite the
    opposite, in fact. Sounds like quackery to me.
