Nutmeg imparts a warm, fragrant flavour to dishes and is used extensively in both sweet and savoury recipes.
In savoury dishes, it works well in souffles and cheese sauces, and with tomatoes, split peas, chicken or black beans in soups.
Nutmeg flavours Italian mortadella sausages, Scottish haggis and Middle Eastern lamb dishes and is often included as part of the Moroccan spice blend ras el hanout.
In sweet dishes, it is added to fruit pies, puddings, custards, cookies and spice cakes.
