Nutmeg is a spice I use all year. However, when the leaves begin to change color and the days get shorter I definitely reach for that seed and grater more often. Indispensable to eggnog and a Starbucks® Pumpkin Spiced Latte, nutmeg is usually associated with sweet, spicy dishes.
Whole nutmegs will keep indefinitely and accompanied by a grater you can grate away anytime.
- One whole nutmeg equals 2-3 tsp of ground nutmeg
- Nutmeg is not a nut and people with nut allergies need not worry
- Adding nutmeg to your recipes is suppose to improve the appetite (not an issue for me)
