Tips for Better Baking #26 – Grate your Own Nutmeg
One of the easiest ways to add more flavor to your baking is by using fresh nutmeg. When recipes call for ‘freshly ground nutmeg,’ skip the ground nutmeg in your pantry and grate your own. You only need whole nutmeg seeds and a rasp grater, such as my personal favorite, the Microplane Spice Grater. You’ll be amazed by how much more fragrant and flavorful your baked goods are and I bet you’ll never go back to the ground nutmeg sold in the spice aisle.
