Cooking with Fresh Nutmeg
Throw those ancient tins of powdered nutmeg out the door and cook with fresh instead.
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.
The "crumbs" in "crumbcake" are a sweet buttery streusel and the cake features buttermilk and spices.
