  • Description

    Nutmeg is the inner brown kernel of the fruit of the nutmeg tree, a tropical evergreen tree, native to the spice islands of Indonesia. It has a characteristic pleasant fragrance and is slightly warm in taste.

    Once collected, the nutmegs need to be dried gradually in the sun for a period of six to eight weeks. During this time, the nutmeg shrinks away from its hard seed coat until the kernels rattle in their shells when shaken. The shell is then broken and the nutmegs are picked up.

    They are used to flavor many kinds of baked goods, confections, puddings, meat, sausages, sauces and vegetables. The nutmeg oil is used as condiment and to scent soaps and perfumes. Used in small dosages nutmeg can reduce flatulence, aid digestion, improve the appetite and treat diarrhea, vomiting and nausea.
