"It is easy to halve the potato where there is love."
You can go any way that strikes your fancy with these. The cinnamon and nutmeg take the flavor sweeter, but you can use sage, for example, and come out with a great savory taste. These would also lend themselves well to spicy cajun or Southwestern flavors.
Nutmeg is sold both as the whole seed and ground. The seed is about an inch long and oval shaped with a light brown skin. Grinding your nutmeg fresh, like grinding any spice fresh, is far superior to any ground nutmeg that you can purchase.
I have a nutmeg grater. These come in a variety of styles, but the one I have is made by Zyliss. It has a little cylinder that the nutmeg fits into and then is held in place with a spring. As you run the holder back and forth over the grater there's no chance of grating your knuckles. A must for any serious chef.
