Description

OliveNation Whole Nutmeg - Whole nutmeg is the seed in the fruit of the Myristica evergreen tree. It is grown in what was known as the “Spice Islands” in Indonesia. The tree is unique because it produces both nutmeg from the seed and mace from the lacy outer coating of the fruit. The pecan sized nutmeg seed has a sweet, woodsy smell and slightly bittersweet flavor.

Nutmeg, like ginger and cinnamon is a spice that can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. You can use it to make desserts like carrot cakes, spice cookies, and cream cheese frostings, as well as in meat dishes, casseroles and stews. Nutmeg goes especially well in pumpkin, squash and lamb dishes. So use it to make Butternut Squash Wedges with Maple Butter, Pumpkin Bread and Middle Eastern dishes.

Olive Nation carries both whole nutmeg and ground nutmeg. Whole nutmeg can be ground and added to your recipes. Many professional chefs and home gourmets prefer the aroma and spicy taste of freshly ground nutmeg. Use a specially designed nutmeg grinder or a rasp-style grater to grate nutmeg on to a hot latte drink.

    Only place around for whole nutmegs. Excellent value. Nothing like fresh nutmeg for cooking baking.

    Great nutmeg at a great price. My 2 ounce package contained 11 nutmegs. Shipping was free. I'm not sure how they do it. It arrived within a week.

    Worth grating the nutmeg for recipes

    Posted by Sarah on Nov 23rd 2016

    I had always used ground nutmeg for recipes before, but was curious about using freshly grated nutmeg instead. It definitely smells amazing and seems to carry through a stronger flavor when baking, you get several and a little goes a long way, I suspect these will last me a while, love the value and price!

    I have never bought this much nutmeg at one time and am so happy to have such a great product and at such a reasonable price.
