SPICE & CO Nutmeg Whole 6 NUTMEGS


Nutmeg is an intensely strong sweet smelling aromatic spice that should be used sparingly as it can be overpowering in dishes. Nutmeg originates from Indonesia. Both nutmeg and mace come from the fruit of the same tree. The tree’s fruit splits into a scarlet outer membrane (mace) and an inner brown seed (nutmeg). Nutmeg is an ingredient in the Moroccan spice mix (ras el hanout) and the French (quatre epices). Nutmeg adds spice to cauliflower, cabbage, carrots and meat ragouts.
