Freshly grated nutmeg is normally used in the kitchen because its aroma is volatile.
The spice is used in potato dishes, soups and stews, in pastries and often also in meat dishes such as meatballs and roast pork.
It is also suitable as a spice for spinach, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, red cabbage and parsnips.
Freshly grated, its effect unfolds best.
Also baked into biscuits it unfolds its amazing effect.
Hildegard von Bingen says that nutmeg drives away negative thoughts.
