Fresh nutmeg is worlds apart from its ground counterpart and almost as easy to use. When picked, the nutmeg seed is surrounded by a lacy membrane that, when dried and ground, becomes mace. You can grind nutmeg in a special grinder or grate it with a small Microplane or specialty nutmeg grater.

Add a dash to eggnog, mashed sweet potatoes, carrot casserole, pumpkin pie and hot cider.
