Ground Nutmeg, spice consisting of the seed of the Mystical fragrance. A tropical, delicious evergreen tree native to the Moluccas, or Spice Islands, of Indonesia. Nutmeg has a distinctive, pungent fragrance and a warm, slightly sweet taste. It is to flavor many kinds of baked goods, confections, puddings, meats, sausages, sauces, vegetables, and such beverages as eggnog.
Around 1600 it became important as an expensive commercial spice of the Western world. It was the subject of Dutch plots to keep prices high and of English and French counter plots to obtain fertile seeds for transplantation. The nutmegs sold whole were dipped in lime to prevent their sprouting. Nutmeg oils are condiments and nominatives and to scent soaps and perfumes.
Ground Nutmeg is available in 50 lb. bulk bag, 25 lb. bulk bag, 15 lb. bag, 10 lb. bag, 5 lb. Jug, 16 oz., 8 oz., and 3 oz. sizes.
