Looking for a flavorful spice to add to your homemade blend? Stop searching, because our Whole Nutmeg excellently combines with a variety of spices and is simply mouthwatering! Nutmeg is an aromatic and warm spice, derived from the tiny seed of the Myristica Fragrans tree, native to Indonesia. Whilst it is often sold in pre-ground form, Whole Nutmeg by Food to Live boasts a stronger taste and preserves its freshness for much longer.

How to use Whole Nutmeg Spice

Grind Whole Nutmeg in a grinder or with a fine grater directly before using in a recipe. This will unleash a distinct spicy nutty aroma with a slightly sweet undertone, reminiscent of clove. Although Whole Nutmeg is used in many savory and sweet recipes, it is especially popular in fall beverages like cappuccino, eggnog, mulled wine, hot chocolate, or chai. Use to season barbecues, curries, stuffing, stews, hearty soups, and pasta sauces. It also goes well with mashed or roasted veggies (cauliflower, sweet potato, spinach); meat (lamb, veal, beef); custards, and cheesy dishes. Sprinkle a dash of ground nutmeg over sweet porridge, smoothies, warm milk, yogurt, and fresh fruit for an added kick. It also adds mouth-melting flavor to pastries, pumpkin pie, cookies, gingerbread, cakes, puddings, muffins, and pancakes. Moreover, nutmeg features prominently in Indian dishes and the infamous garam masala spice mix.
