Ground Nutmeg

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 3 reviews

Nutmeg was once so rare and valuable the Dutch traded Manhattan to the British for the sole island on which it grew. It has a fragrant and intense flavor when freshly ground. Today, our Ground Nutmeg is used in baked goods and custards, and grated for mashed potatoes, ravioli fillings, and egg nog. Also available in Whole Nutmeg. Visit our blog to learn nutmeg's history and browse new recipes.

Details

Until just a few centuries ago, all the world’s nutmeg grew on just a few tiny islands in Indonesia. European colonial powers fought bitterly over control of these islands, as nutmeg was highly valued for its flavor, preservative qualities, and alleged ability to cure plague. The Dutch held a monopoly on nutmeg production for many years, but when it was broken nutmeg trees spread to the West Indies and beyond; this fresh, high-oil ground nutmeg comes from Indonesia. Nutmeg is used in sweet baking, especially in pumpkin pie and spice cakes, and it’s also a common ingredient in Northern European sausage and stew recipes. In the South, a pinch of nutmeg is crucial to macaroni and cheese and stewed greens. Indonesian and Japanese curries frequently use nutmeg for a subtle sweetness, and Caribbean cooking adds nutmeg to greens, oxtail stew, and as a garnish for several rum-based drinks. Ingredients: Nutmeg.

So fresh!

If you’re not going to take the time to grind your own whole nutmeg, this is the next best thing! It’s wonderful in my baked donuts and sprinkled on top of lattes!
