Personally I would crack them and throw the pieces directly into the tobacco and then fish them out later. May be a bit more tedious but that's the best way i can think to really infuse some flavor into the mix.
Infusing the flavors by using large chunks and removing them was the plan the whole time, ad this is a great idea. I'm going to buy some whole Nutmeg in a few minutes
