I thought about this too, but the cheesecloth would absorb too much of the already mixed in liquid ingredients I would think.

Look under Nutmeg Natural
How true to flavor would you think this would taste? From my experience with flavorings, commercial flavorings are always a bit off, and I would probably want to use something that's more like an extract, for flavor quality and strength mainly. Any idea where I would be able to find an extract maybe?

What I'm thinking, about the nutmeg, is that I can get something that shaves off larger chunks, like maybe the larget side of a cheese grater?
