Used for thousands of years, nutmeg is the seed of the plant Myristica fragrans, an evergreen tree indigenous to the Moluccas, or Spice Islands, of Indonesia. It's actually the same tree that produces mace, nutmeg's more savory cousin. These days M. fragrans grows in India, Malaysia, and as far away as Grenada.

We admit: it's difficult to describe what makes nutmeg so good. It's warm, slightly sweet, and almost inexplicably perfect in the dishes you use it with. Sweets, stews, meats and mashed potatoes, somehow nutmeg just works.

The nutritional and medicinal side-effects of nutmeg are somewhat apocryphal, some more far-out than others. So let's just say use this nutmeg like your mama would. Grind fresh over soups, stews, and curries. Come Christmas, do the same over egg nog.

Use & Care

Seeds and spices are deceivingly delicate, so store in a cool, dry place, preferably away from a lot of natural light. For best flavor, use within one year.

Production & Design

Begun as a mom and pop in Petaluma, California-- literally, with Mom and Dad growing herbs and trucking them to the farmer's market, Whole Spice evolved to bring that same level of freshness and hand-grown care to chefs and home kitchens all over. No chemicals or MSG here, Whole Spice have long been dedicated to spreading the gospel of good herbs and spices.
