A fresh, ground version of whole nutmeg offers a more potent flavor and vibrant aroma than ground nutmeg. To grind, simply use a microplane grater or nutmeg grater and slide the nutmeg seed down along the grater. Because the nutmeg is so potent, only a small amount is needed to deliver big flavor.
Warm, Nutty Flavor
Nutmeg has a warm, nutty, and slightly sweet flavor and is a highly aromatic spice. It has been described as more zesty than cinnamon but less intense than mace. It's ideal for using as an ingredient in recipes, or as a garnish for specialty beverages, like a holiday eggnog or the classic painkiller cocktail!
Nutmeg brings flavor to so many sweet and savory dishes, and is commonly used for desserts, such as pumpkin pie, apple pie, and carrot cake. It can also be used to bring added depth to spinach dishes, cheese sauces, and curries. Or, use this whole nutmeg to create your own pumpkin pie spice or Garam Masala blend.
