Nutmeg - Ground

Thanks for contacting us. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Nutmeg comes from the seeds of the nutmeg tree, Myristica fragrans, which is native to Indonesia. The seeds are contained within the fruit of the tree, which splits open to reveal the seed enclosed by a bright red aril known as Mace. After harvesting, the seeds are dried and then ground into nutmeg - a spice pantry staple.

Ground Nutmeg is a versatile spice, adding warmth and depth to a wide range of savory dishes and sweet baked goods. Nutmeg is sweet and nutty and adds a distinctive, classic flavor to custards, pie fillings and cream sauces. In savory dishes, you'll find nutmeg in creamy soups, stews and sauces.The distinctive aroma and flavor of nutmeg elevates the taste of the dish.

Add nutmeg at the end of cooking to keep its flavor full. Use it in puddings, eggnog and spiced wine. We love it added to muffins and apple pies. Looking for Whole Nutmeg? Find it here. And don't forget the Microplane Nutmeg Grater or this unique Danish Nutmeg Grater.
