About Nutmegs Ground
Nutmeg has a slightly sweet taste and makes a wonderful addition to cheese sauces. It is used often in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines as well.
Ground nutmeg is the oily powder produced by grinding whole nutmegs.
The hardness and oil content of nutmeg mean it is not particularly easy to grind in the domestic situation so pre-ground nutmeg provides a convenient alternative to whole nutmeg.
