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. These large whole nutmegs are grown in the Caribbean island of Grenada, which is famous for especially high-quality nutmegs. Their dense, oily pits will keep for years in your cupboard, releasing an amazingly complex aroma and flavor every time you grate them. Nutmeg is used in sweet baking, especially pumpkin pie and spice cakes, as well as being 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. Ingredients: Nutmeg.

Very fresh...

I love using whole nutmeg - especially during the holidays. This nutmeg is very fresh and lends the perfect flavor to cookies and eggnog.

Who knew how great whole nutmeg would be?!

We had no idea what a difference freshly grated nutmeg would make in -- well, everything!

The flavor is amazing and 5 nuts may not seem like a lot, but we have been using it on everything for a month, and we're still on our first nut. Love it. (Townsends, by the way, is the reason we tried it in the first place. If you haven't seen their 18th century cooking videos, do so.) But the nutmeg success made me order Croatian sage and also savory, and these fresh spices are absolutely NOTHING like what you get at the grocery store. A world apart.

there's nothing like freshly grated nutmeg

Once you grate nutmeg into a dish and taste the results, you'll make sure to have whole nutmeg always on hand.
