Nutmeg is the seed from the Myristica Fragrans tree that is sometimes called “True Nutmeg”. This tree, which grows natively in Indonesia, is responsible for producing two spices. The outside coating of the seed is used for the spice known as ‘Mace’, and the inner seed is the actual nutmeg. Nutmeg is a fragrant spice with a unique, sweet, earthy flavour and aroma. This versatile seasoning can be used in spice mixes, sweet or savoury recipes, and beverages.
How to Use:
Ground nutmeg is wonderful for breakfast in porridge, smoothies, compote, or with yoghurt and fresh fruit. It is found in many Indian dishes and spice mixes, including garam masala. A pinch of nutmeg will add a new dimension to dahl or chickpea recipes. Or use with mashed potato, roasted vegetables, hearty soups and hotpots. Nutmeg is delicious in fruit cakes, steamed puddings, gingerbread, spiced buns, muffins and pancakes. Or add a dash of this spice to a mug of hot chocolate, coffee or chai.
