Nutmeg is used to elevate the flavors in food and beverage applications. It compliments both meat-based and vegetarian products, enhancing the richness of gravies, sauces, and stews. The warm and slightly sweet notes compliment soups, medleys, condiments, and baked goods like pies, custards, cookies, cakes, and more. Nutmeg is commonly used in spiced teas, hot chocolates, coffee, and mulled wines. It works in harmony with other spices like cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
