Nutmeg is a staple ingredient for any home chef. This ground seed adds tons of warm, nutty, fragrant flavor to a variety of dishes, and is a particularly integral ingredient in autumnal-themed baked good recipes such as our Carrot and Pecan Gateau with Vanilla Frosting or our Gluten Free Pumpkin and Nut Cake. But beyond dessert, nutmeg plays a significant role in an array of savory recipes as well, adding an important, smoky foil to dishes that brightens rich ingredients like cheese and meats without imbuing too much of a spicy flavor. Nutmeg is a significant ingredient in lasagna and mac and cheese, for instance, though you’ve probably never actually detected it if the dish is done correctly.
