Ground Nutmeg

Fall Flavor
Pantry Staple

Dive into the aromatic joy of Ground Nutmeg, a spice that has graced the kitchens of chefs, bakers, and culinary enthusiasts for centuries. Originating from the fragrant nutmeg trees of the Spice Islands, this rich and robust spice introduces a world of warmth, sweetness, and subtle spice to every dish.

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.

The Spice House


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. 

The magic of Ground Nutmeg is woven intricately into its multifaceted flavor profile. With a scent reminiscent of fresh hay and a taste that dances between sweet and warmly spicy, it's the secret behind the comforting aroma of pies, puddings, and lattes. But its prowess isn't confined to sweet endeavors alone. Ground Nutmeg shines equally in savory dishes, adding depth to sauces, soups, and meat preparations. Its fine texture ensures it melds seamlessly, making every bite a celebration of balanced and bold flavors.

Sourced from the best nutmeg suppliers, each nut is selected for its quality and aroma, then ground to perfection to retain its full-bodied flavor. Our commitment to quality ensures that what reaches your pantry is devoid of any artificial additives or fillers, offering you the genuine, unadulterated essence of nutmeg in its finest form.

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.

Pie perfect!

Works perfect in my Thanksgiving pumpkin and apple pies.

Gail M.

I use nutmeg primarily for baking. I have been buying the nutmeg and all of my spices from The Spice House since the Evanston shop opened many years ago. I’ve always loved walking into the shop and smelling and/or tasting the freshly ground spices. I have since moved to Florida, but I still purchase all of my spices from The Spice House.

Sharon A.
