What do you do with your nutmeg?

Hello, and hope the new year is being good to u.

I do not know how to use nutmeg creatively.
I just cant guess what it would taste good in, like I can do with other spices.
I just put it in things, when I read it, in a receipe.
So far, I have used it in white sauce and with root vegetables.

Anybody use it with something else?

Mel

I grind nutmeg over chicken noodle soup. Reminds me of Grandma's house.

I always use a pinch of it with sauteed mushrooms. Also in alfredo sauce. Always with parsnips.

Nutmeg adds a nice flavour when added in meatballs or meatloaf.
Also a perpetual ingredients in my curry spice mix.
Another thing, it goes real well with bechamelle sauce.

All of them though, needs to be used discreetly, not to the point to become overpowering, well as with all other spices of course!
