How much ground nutmeg equals a whole nutmeg?
I was searching the net for this precise answer - I found your question before I found the answer! Anyway, if you're still looking for an answer I found another website that said a whole nutmeg yield 2 to 3 teaspoons of ground nutmeg.
Yes. Nutmeg is a spice generally ground or grated onto food. It is a spice that is the seed of the nutmeg tree, a tropical evergreen that grow on the Spice Islands. The fruit of the tree produces mace which is ground from the dried fibrous meat of the fruit and the nutmeg seed which is used whole or ground. It is most commonly used in desserts, dairy dishes, curries, and spiced drinks. However, one…
Two spices come from the fruit of the nutmeg tree (Myristica fragrans); they are nutmeg and mace. Nutmeg is the kernel, or seed, which is sold either ground or whole. The flavour of ready-ground nutmeg, like all pre-ground spices, lacks flavour and body; it is much better to buy whole nutmeg and grind it as needed: it's easy to grind using a nutmeg grinder (from kitchenware stores and departments) or the starburst or fine-grating section…
Mace is the outer covering of nutmeg, and is lighter in taste and color than the interior of the nutmeg. It's mostly used in baking, especially cookies. Buying whole nutmegs and gently grating the hard shell is much cheaper than buying ground mace, which has a short shelf life and is not often called for in recipes.
This will vary. Buying pre-grated nutmeg should never be recommended, but if it was grated recently, it should be close to 1:1 and taper off in intensity AND quality of flavors the longer it sits; it depends upon for how long, and in what conditions, the pre-grated nutmeg was stored. If it has sat for a year it will probably taste like dust.
Allspice is usually sold as a ground up powder like nutmeg or cinnamon. However, in its solid form the Allspice is in the shape of a small sphere about the size of WHOLE Black Pepper. (about 3mm balls) When Allspice is used in cooking Corned Beef or Pickled Pork, it is used in its Whole form and discarded after cooking. A teaspoon is approx. 40 Whole balls & weighs about 3 gram total .
I would suggest upping the dosage. You really shouldn't judge how much nutmeg you're taking by the tablespoon. You should weigh it out using a scale, because the nutmeg may be packed tightly or loosely. Since you already took two tablespoons and didn't feel anything, I think you should take 3 tablespoons from the exact same source. Different sources will have a different potency, and the general consensus is that freshly ground nutmeg is much…
You should be careful using nutmeg, in large quantities it can be extremely toxic. But it depends on how many cloves you have. I don't usually use just nutmeg for the toxic reason, but a mixture of cinnamon and nutmeg. Say you have 6 cloves, you would use 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/8 tsp nutmeg. Hope this helps!
You will probably get very sick after getting high, it is a very miserable experience to get high off nutmeg. Also there is a chance you could die. Getting high off nutmeg is really dumb. The oil in the nutmeg that gets you high can kill you if you eat to much of it. Don't get high off nutmeg because you will regret it. You will get sick and could possibly die.
Sources vary. One source says 1 tbsp fresh equals 1/4 tsp ground, another says 1 tbsp fresh equals 1/8 tsp ground (half as much!). So I translate them to either 1/12 tsp of ground or even less (because there are three teaspoons in a tablespoon). How about a few shakes from the jar? That's what I do when the recipe says one teaspoon freshly ground and it hasn't ruined anything yet.
