Cooking by the Numbers…

Step 1 – Grind Your Spices

I prefer to use freshly ground spices whenever possible and in this case, that includes nutmeg.

Freshly ground spice has much more flavor than the pre-ground stuff and you owe it to yourself to try it out.

The best way to grind nutmeg and other hard seed-based spices is either with a dedicated electric spice grinder or a blade style coffee grinder.

A blade style coffee grinder used to grind nutmeg.
One of the easiest ways to grind nutmeg and other spices is to use a blade style coffee mill.

In a pinch, you can also use a mortar and pestle for most spices. But whole nutmeg is a little too big for that kind of approach.

And feel free to use the regular powered kind instead if that’s what is available (although you’ll be missing some of the wonderful flavor).

Step 2 – Add the Vanilla

Add the vanilla extract. Don’t skimp. Use an all-natural vanilla product here. None of that imitation stuff.

Dry ingedients added to a mixing bowl.

Or if you want to get real gung-ho, make your own extract with vanilla bean pods.

Step 3 – Add the Milk

Slowly incorporate the milk bit by bit.

The glaze being whisked in a stainless steel mixing bowl.

Whisk the entire time, and stop when you’ve reached your desired viscosity.
