Method

  1. Toast the whole spices in a small pan until they are aromatic and have turned a shade or two darker. Don’t be tempted to skip this stage, as it really enhances the flavours.

  2. Tip into a spice grinder (or use a pestle and mortar), then add the ready-ground spices and dried herbs if required, and crush to a fine powder. Store in a sealed jar for up to six months.

Does this mean half of a whole nutmeg or half a tablespoon?

Thanks for your question. Yes, it's half of a whole nutmeg. We've added 'grated' to make it clearer.
