Making a pie....

I am making a sweet potato pie... I have all ingredients except nutmeg. But I do have the cinnamon, and allspice it calls for already. Would it make a terrible difference if I left the nutmeg out or should I go to the store?

  • You can leave it out. No harm, no foul. Nutmeg is really strong and it's usually only used in small quantites for just a hint of background flavor.

  • not really. I say go ahead and make it. It's not calling for a lot of it right?
