Nutmeg is a wonderfully warm and aromatic spice found in many Autumn recipes. Whole nutmeg has a stronger flavor that lasts indefinitely when compared to ground nutmeg that loses its flavor quite quickly. Use a spice grinder or microplane to grate from the seed just the amount you need in a recipe for the ultimate flavor.
Native to the Banda Islands in Indonesia. Grown mainly in the West Indies, but also in South Africa and Sri Lanka.
