McCormick® Nutmeg, Ground

McCormick® ground nutmeg lends nutty, slightly sweet flavor and aroma to a variety of dishes. Try it in everything from savory Indian curries and classic béchamel sauce to desserty recipes for vanilla custard, eggnog and more. Or pair it with similar spices, including cinnamon, allspice and mace to enhance the taste of your favorite recipes.

Usage Tips

Ground nutmeg fills the kitchen with a sweet, nutty aroma when holiday cookies and spice cakes are in the oven. For a festive touch, we love to add a dash to frothy eggnog or baked vanilla custard. On the savory side, nutmeg brings a warm undertone to white sauces like the classic béchamel used in Mediterranean pasta casseroles. (Think spinach lasagna!) It’s savored in cuisines around the world, from Indian curries to Scandinavian cream sauces. You’ll find ground nutmeg flavoring sausages, slow-cooked meat and tomato sauces, winter squash and sweet potato dishes and creamed vegetables. You can even shake it onto your next bowl of macaroni and cheese. Ground nutmeg should deliver a soft, sweet aroma like the first perfect sip of eggnog.
