Grinding the nutmeg is not going to be easy. It takes lots of elbow grease and pounding to get it to a find powder. It took me about 10 minutes to get it really fine. So, be sure to have patience when blending it.
You can use ground nutmeg too, if you don't want to blend whole nutmeg
Keep the bottle with pumpkin pie spice in the pantry, away from direct sunlight
