Nutmeg is the dried seed of the fruit of an evergreen. Warm and sweet, nutmeg adds depth to desserts and savoury dishes alike. Sprinkle it on your eggnog, but try it on your potatoes, too!

Nutmeg’s flavour is a bit sweeter, but more robust than the flavour of mace. It’s traditionally used in Italian sausages, Middle Eastern lamb recipes, and various spice blends (some curry powder and garam masala blends, for example). Europeans use it in potato dishes, sauces, baked goods and processed meats.
You’ll find nutmeg in recipes for pies, cookies, cakes, puddings, and custards, as well as sauces and soufflés. Try it in soups (especially split pea and tomato soups), and with seafood, fish, chicken, beans, and eggs. It works well with cheeses and a variety of vegetables, too, like cabbage, broccoli, onions, eggplant, spinach and Brussels sprouts. Don’t forget to sprinkle it on eggnog, mulled wines and punches. Mashed potatoes are delicious with a light dusting of nutmeg, too.
