To use whole nutmeg, you can grate or grind it just before using to preserve its flavour. Nutmeg graters or a microplane can be used to grate the seed into a fine powder. Alternatively, a spice grinder or mortar and pestle can be used to grind the whole seed. Whole nutmeg is a versatile spice that can be used in a variety of dishes and recipes. Some common uses and recipes that feature whole nutmeg are:
  1. Baking: Nutmeg is a popular spice in baking. It adds a warm, aromatic flavour to cakes, cookies, pies, and bread. It pairs well with other warm spices like cinnamon and cloves.
  2. Hot Beverages: Nutmeg can be added to hot beverages like mulled wine, hot chocolate, and spiced cider to enhance the flavour and aroma.
  3. Soups and Stews: Whole nutmeg can be grated or finely ground and added to soups, stews, and broths to add depth and warmth to the flavours.
  4. Creamy Sauces: Nutmeg complements creamy sauces, such as bechamel or alfredo sauce, adding a subtle but distinctive flavour.
  5. Vegetable Dishes: Nutmeg pairs well with vegetables like spinach, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes. It can be sprinkled over roasted vegetables or added to pureed soups to enhance their taste.
  6. Rice and Grain Dishes: A pinch of nutmeg can elevate the flavour of rice dishes, pilafs, and risottos.
A few recipes to try include:
  1.  Classic Eggnog: Combine whole milk, heavy cream, egg yolks, sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of grated nutmeg in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Chill and serve cold, garnished with more grated nutmeg.
