Nutmeg Grater Grinder Glossary Term
not yet rated
Ground nutmeg is available prepackaged, but fresh whole nutmeg, that is grated or ground, provides more flavor than the prepackaged variety. When grating a whole nutmeg, the best tool to use is a special nutmeg grater or grinder. To grate fresh nutmeg, move the whole seed across the fine holes on the grater resulting in coarse particles of nutmeg to be shed. If a nutmeg grinder is used, the grinder contains a chamber that holds the whole nutmeg seed, while a top plate presses against the seed, forcing it down and into a grinding blade. As the seed is rotated in a circular direction, it moves against the blade and is ground into a fine powder. Nutmeg is most often used with sweet or spicy dishes such as pies, custards, puddings, cookies, cakes, and beverages such as milk or egg-based beverages, mulled wine, and punch. It is also used in souffl├ęs, vegetables, egg dishes, sausages, lamb, and fish.
