Uses for nutmeg scraps?

I always used whole nutmegs, and I grate as needed. Invariably, I have about 1/8 or so of various nutmegs gathering in a jar. This are too small to grate (without taking some finger off, too), but I hate to throw them away. Does anyone have any ideas for how to use these?

I'd love some nutmeg infused steamed milk. Yum.

Use a microplane to grate the scraps. I know it sounds impossible but you can run your fingertips down the surface of a microplane without any harm.
