  • It would be equal. Grated nutmeg is the same thing you get in the jar, but watch how long you've had it. It doesn't taste nearly as good, because the essential oils evaporate.

  • it could be equal but i learned that if you dont use the fresh stuff, you wouldnt use as much as it called for, so i would myself use half of that...1/4 tsp
