Tagliatelle Pasta in Savory Pumpkin Sauce
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.
The allure of Whole Nutmeg lies in its pristine form. When freshly grated, it releases a spectrum of flavors that pre-ground nutmeg simply can't match. This is the secret behind the most tantalizing desserts, savory dishes, and even beverages. Whether it's the key note in a classic bechamel sauce, the heartwarming touch in a pumpkin pie, or the aromatic hint in a festive eggnog, Whole Nutmeg stands as a beacon of authenticity and depth of flavor. Its natural oils are preserved within its shell, ensuring that every grate introduces a potent and fresh essence to the dish.

I love the aroma of freshly grated nutmeg in my baked goods and especially in a batch of instant oatmeal. Rather than buying little packets, I put all the ingredients in an airtight container with lots of nutmeg, my daughter scoops a half cup adds water and breakfast is ready in two minutes.
I love it
Had never tried fresh nutmeg, big improvement. Very good nutmetg.
I love using whole nutmeg. Grating it fresh is such a better flavor. It's such a underused spice in my opinion. I use it often .
