We don't have Nutmeg in Norway. But maybe it has another name.. hehe..
I have to find out!
I'm making Eggnog!
Let us know how it turns out!
You don't have to use nutmeg in topping your eggnog. This is a good example of what I mean in saying that it is overused. You only need to dash a very small amount of nutmeg on your eggnog (if at all). There are those who pour it on like they're making nutmeg soup. It kills the flavor of the eggnog.
I've got a relative who lays the nutmeg on heavy in her pumpkin pie -- so much so that it just about twists your face to eat it. It's a pumpkin pie, folks.
