Spiced Sweet Potato Cookies

Serious Eats Carrie Vasios Mullins 2 comments

Instead of pumpkin, these cookies are made with sweet potatoes. Molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger give them an autumnal flavor. More

Spanokopita-Style Hand Pies

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz Post a comment

[Photograph: Max Falkowitz] A really good spinach pie is harder to make than it seems. The spinach and cheese must be balanced, neither overwhelming the other. The pie shouldn't be too rich or too watery, and the flavors should be... More

Spice Hunting: Nutmeg

Spice Hunting Max Falkowitz 11 comments

Even when you think you know nutmeg, it jumps out to surprise you with some new flavor pairing. After about 1,000 years of circulation on the global spice routes, nutmeg's worked its way into a significant fraction of Asian, European, Middle Eastern, and African cuisines. It seems to go with just about anything, and its rich, fragrant flavor and aroma are intoxicating. More

Time for a Drink: Colleen Bawn

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 1 comment

The Colleen Bawn dates to at least 1903, when the recipe appeared in The Flowing Bowl by Edward Spencer. Driven by the spark of rye whiskey, the drink introduces two very big hitters in the realm of full-flavored liqueurs— Benedictine and green Chartreuse—and blunts their sometimes overwhelming impact with the richness of an egg.

Poll: Do You Use Pre-Ground or Fresh Nutmeg?

Erin Zimmer 57 comments

It's never fun to read about food recalls, especially when they involve spices that make you think warmly of egg nog, holiday cookies, and seasonal cocktail garnishes. I'm talking about nutmeg. Yesterday, the FDA recalled nutmeg sold under the Frontier Bulk and Whole Foods Market brands from Mincing Overseas Spice Company in South Brunswick, New Jersey. At first the news sounded sad (should I fear nutmeg all December?) but really it's just more inspiration to grate the fresh kind. The pre-ground shakable dust loses flavor and aroma quickly, and nothing beats scraping it along a microplane. Do you buy it pre-ground or grate fresh nutmeg? Take the poll! » More

How to Make Spiced Rum From Scratch

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 1 comment

Making spiced rum is deliriously easy. Simply take your desired mix of spices and other ingredients, pop them in a bottle of rum for, oh, two days, then taste. Need the spice mix a bit stronger? Let it sit a day or two more, or, edit the taste profile as you go, adding more of an ingredient if you wish to push it forward. More

Cook the Book: Chicken with Nutmeg

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 9 comments

This recipe for Chicken with Nutmeg from Italian Easy by Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers is intensely satisfying (as all roasted chickens are) but has a little more going on than the usual white wine and lemon flavors. Nutmeg with chicken, you may be wondering? The combination was positively genius. More

Summer Nectarine Scones With Nutmeg Sugar

Carey Jones 1 comment

Photograph from 5 Second Rule Beautiful summer mornings call for equally beautiful baked goods, like these nectarine scones with nutmeg sugar from blog 5 Second Rule. And they're perfect for weekend guests or lazy mornings, because, as author Cheryl Sternman Rule notes, "they're very easy to make in advance and freeze. When everyone wakes up, all you have to do is brush the tops with cream, sprinkle them with sugar, and pop them directly in the oven."... More

John Legend's 'Nutmeg' Song on Stephen Colbert's Christmas Special

Adam Kuban 22 comments

"I wanna nog your egg." If you watched Stephen Colbert's A Colbert Christmas last night, I'm sorry. That was an hour you'll never get back. Only marginally funny, the show's best bit was perhaps the John Legend performance. The R&B star played a visiting forest ranger singing a song about nutmeg. Legend: "I'll sprinkle your Christmas cream with my spice supreme Colbert: "What about all-spice?" "You know it leaves me cold as ice" "Cinnamon?" "Don't even think of putting that in" "Cardamom?" "It won't let me drop my love bomb" The video, after the jump.... More
