Native to the Banda Islands, also known as the “spice islands,” nutmeg comes from a tropical evergreen tree that also yields the spice known as mace. Nutmeg is the seed in the fruit of the tree, while mace is the protective covering that transfers nourishment from the fruit to the seed.
Nutmeg has a warm, sweet and spicy flavor that compliments both sweet and savory dishes. Commonly used in baking in combination with spices like cinnamon and ginger, nutmeg also adds dimension to stews, sauces, curries and slow-cooked meat dishes.
Purchasing whole nutmeg is a great way to extend the life of this volatile spice, especially if it sees limited use in your kitchen. Simply use a nutmeg grater or the smallest-hole side of a cheese grater to grate the required amount of spice off of the whole seed. Nutmeg is also considered a “wedding charm” spice, along with rosemary and star anise. German tradition says a sound marriage will result if a sound nutmeg is kept in the kitchen.
