A December ‘Advent’-ure: Day 10

Buyer beware! That nutmeg spiced eggnog prevalent on the shelves this time of year contains a hallucinogenic substance: nutmeg. The quantity to achieve this effect is unlikely to be consumed by most people. Still, just stick to the pinch of nutmeg that many recipes call for.

Your challenge today…enjoy using alternate spices in moderation. A combination of all or some of the following provides a warming effect to your food while also offering some health benefits: allspice, cinnamon, ginger, galangal, cardamom.
