Ground nutmeg has a rich, warm flavour with sweet clove notes. Centuries ago, European colonies fought over nutmeg kernel production due to its high status. Nowadays nutmeg is used in the western world due to its versatility in both sweet and savoury dishes.
Nutmeg is commonly associated with Christmas and is a key ingredient in mince pies and Christmas pudding. It is also used in cheese-based dishes like béchamel sauce or ricotta-stuffed ravioli. Try adding a pinch to sausage stews for a warm, subtle flavour.
