With a warm, sweet flavor, Organic Ground Nutmeg is the milled seeds of any of several species of trees in the genus Myristica, the most important of which is Myristica Fragrans, indigenous to Indonesia and Malaysia. Nutmeg grows wrapped in a bright red, web-like casing with a similar warm, sweet flavor. This coating is ground into the spice known as mace.
The nutmeg seed itself is ground or grated and used to add depth to savory dishes or to round out other sweet flavors. It is most notably associated with winter baking and spiced beverages.
The fruit surrounding the nut is often candied or turned into preserves, or juiced and turned into a “nutmeg” syrup. The aril around the nutmeg is the spice we call mace. Nutmeg, however, is the primary harvest.
The hard brown seed has a warm, spicy sweet flavor, that is released when ground or grated.
