Nutmeg has its origins in the Spice Islands of Indonesia. It is a light brown or grayish wrinkled seed inside a smooth, hard, blackish brown nut.

Nutmeg is used ground, grated or crushed. It uses its flavour easily when ground, so it should be bought whole and then grounded when desired. Its flavour can vary from a sweetly spicy to a heavier taste. Not only that, but it is sweeter in flavour than Mace.

Nutmeg compliments chocolate, fruits, custards, coconut milk, lemon grass and kari leaves. Europeans use it in mashed potatoes, rice dishes, pasta's, soups, rice puddings, pies, eggnog, biscuits, and milk based drinks.

Therapeutic uses: Traditionally, nutmeg has been used to treat the digestive disorders, such as nausea and diarrhoea as well as kidney aliments. South East Asians also treat fevers, headaches, and bronchial problems with nutmeg.

It is available by  100g, 500g and 1 kg
