Nutmeg is the seed of a tropical tree that takes nearly a decade to flower. Once harvested, the seed is separated from the veins of mace that engulf it and dried.

Nutmeg is an Old World spice, once highly prized and literally worth its weight in gold. At one time, ground nutmeg was a popular additive to snuff. In Medieval Europe, nutmeg was thought to be a remedy for the plague. Today, most people are familiar with ground nutmeg as a baking spice and the finishing touch for a cup of hot cocoa.

ground nutmeg

Nutmeg isn’t technically a nut; it’s the dried fruit of an evergreen, tropical tree native to the area of Indonesia commonly referred to as the Spice Islands. As its species name of “fragrans” implies, nutmeg is very fragrant.

Today, nutmeg is cultivated throughout Indonesia as well as China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and South America. In the respective cuisines of these regions, nutmeg is used to flavor sweet and savory foods as well as beverages and liquors.
