At McCormick, we hand-pick the whole nutmeg for intense nutty flavor. Our Ground Nutmeg adds distinctive sweet-spicy flavor to a variety of sweet and savory dishes. Nutmeg is at home in dishes around the world, including in Indian curries, French bechamel, Swedish meatballs and Middle Eastern lamb dishes. So versatile, it works with savory recipes for scalloped potatoes, glazed carrots, creamed spinach and cream soups. At holiday time, ground nutmeg fills the kitchen with a sweet, nutty aroma when spiced cookies and gingerbread are baking. Use it in rice pudding, pumpkin pie and in beverages like eggnog and mulled wine or cider. It pairs with similar spices, including cinnamon, allspice and mace to enhance the taste of dessert recipes.
