Foundation. Flavor. Food.
Whole Nutmeg is nutty, woody, warm and spicy, and bittersweet with notes of pepper and clove. The seed of the Indonesian evergreen tree Myristica fragrans, Whole Nutmeg has a rich fragrance; its smell is piney with a bit of camphor and pepper, but it’s also surprisingly weighty and almost smells buttery. This is because it is laden with essential oil; nutmeg is made up of 6.5% to 16% essential oil and much of that is, notably, myristicin. Many people have heard that nutmeg can be an hallucinogen and myristicin is the culprit. When consumed in high doses—several teaspoons or more in one sitting—Whole Nutmeg is an intoxicant. However, the likelihood of unintentional overconsumption of nutmeg is extremely unlikely since a little goes a long way and it’s only used in small, safe amounts.
When using Whole Nutmeg, invest in a nutmeg grater or Microplane to get a fine grind on this spice; a little does go a long way, and finer grinds disperse more readily through a dish.
Our Whole Nutmeg is grown in Indonesia.
