Ground Nutmeg Q & A


What is ground nutmeg and what does it taste like?

Nutmeg is the seed of a fruit produced by an evergreen tree, and has a fresh, rich aroma and a woody, bittersweet flavor with hints of clove. It is warm and aromatic with a deep flavor.

What do you use ground nutmeg for?

Ground nutmeg can be added to both sweet and savory recipes. When using in cakes, breads, pastries, fruit dishes and pies, it pairs well with ginger, cinnamon and cloves. It's also an ingredient in our Pumpkin Pie Spice. When used with lamb, meat stews, spinach dishes, veal, vegetable recipes and even pasta sauces, it pairs well with cumin, coriander, pepper and thyme.

Is nutmeg similar to cinnamon?

Yes. Nutmeg and cinnamon have similar flavor profiles. Both are warm and woody, although cinnamon has a stronger flavor so if using it as a substitute for nutmeg, start with half the amount called for.
