You don;t need to use nutmeg if you don't want to - it's just for extra flavour!!!
Loved this! It was so easy to make! And the pastry was fab, I tweaked it only adding 3 table spoons of sugar and a lot of vanilla extract with the seeds , gives it so much flavour complimenting the nutmeg! It set beautifully in the 20 minutes I cooked it , my second one curdled becuase i left it in for a longer 26 minutes. I would advise you not to take your mind off it! - 19 Jul 2014
