Today in my A to Z trip through December, we are on N! To check out the earlier posts, click here!
N is for Nutmeg!
More than any other season, I associate winter with very specific flavors and foods: eggnog, shortbread,
boxes of chocolates, fruitcake... and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. My favorite, hands down, is nutmeg. It is warm and adds a tantalizing depth to what ever you add it to!
Big Rock, a local brewery, used to release a seasonal Winter Spice Ale and it also had nutmeg! And I loved it! Yummy! (I haven't seen it in stores yet this year... must going looking for it!)
I add nutmeg to coffee, hot chocolate, pumpkin pies, porridge... well, you get the idea.
Do you have a favorite winter food or flavor?
