Grenada / Myristica fragrans
We only sell nutmeg in whole form because it loses flavor so quickly, and the difference between the freshly ground spice and the pre-ground variety is like night and day. The freshly ground nutmeg is incredibly rich, earthy and complex- try it and you'll never look back! There are many grinders and graters on the market, but to make it easy our staff pick is the Microplane, which pulls double duty as a top-notch zester.
A classic topping for eggnog and lattes, Nutmeg is a natural with cream sauces and custards. Grate some into your next stone fruit dessert for a flavor explosion! Nutmeg works in savory dishes as well- try a little in your next chicken casserole or spinach dish.
