For any keen baker.
It’s that time of year again. Many people celebrate Easter, which is marked by Hot Cross Buns. Mother’s Day has traditional simnel cakes. Spring is the nutmeg season so a nutmeg grater would be a welcome gift for any keen baker.
Aromatic nutmeg is the spice from the nutmeg tree. The hard nut has a distinctive fragrance when ground. It is instantly recognisable by its warming nature. A little pinch goes a long way and is indispensable in some puddings, meats, sausages, sauces and vegetables. It’s also a garnish for some cocktails!
A traditional ingredient
In Dutch cuisine, nutmeg is added to Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and green beans. Nutmeg is a traditional ingredient in mulled cider and mulled wine. In Scotland nutmeg is found in haggis. Nutmeg is a ubiquitous spice for American pumpkin pie. In the Caribbean, nutmeg is often used in drinks, such as rum punch.
Nutmeg, like many other spices, is best when freshly ground or grated. It’s a hard and woody nut which really needs a specific grater. The KitchenCraft Stainless Steel Nutmeg and Spice Grater is the implement for grating nutmeg and other spices. The well-designed curved grater features a hinged internal storage compartment to store whole nutmeg and spices before grating. It has a hole at the top to allow this grater to be hung on the larder wall.
KitchenCraft Stainless Steel Nutmeg and Spice Grater doesn’t cost a fortune and it will make a unique addition to any baker’s kitchen.
