Nutmeg

Apple pie, cheese sauce, jerk seasoning, egg nog: they all contain nutmeg. The flavor is recognizable but the seed it comes from is quite forgettable. Plus, in large quantities, it's a hallucinogen (although, side effects are pretty bad and too much will kill you). It's best grated fresh with a microplane, but have you ever bothered to do so? We were gifted whole nutmeg, which is why we do. The coolest thing is what it looks like inside.

  1. Could'nt get my own password to register and fell upon your dad's, so I am using it. Liked the simplicity of the soup and the asparagus salad to go along. I will try to duplicate your recipes. Have not used the coconut milk yet when cooking. Had lunch at the Thai restaurant and all the dishes we tasted had coconut milk in them and red or green curry. Thanks for blogging again.
