    Botanically known as Myristica fragrans, the nutmeg tree originates in Banda, the largest of the Molucca spice islands of Indonesia. The English word nutmeg comes from the Latin nux, meaning nut, and muscat, meaning musky.

    You may be wondering why a spice we use to sprinkle over a Christmastime beverage would cause so much blood and turmoil. Turns out nutmeg was fashionable among the wealthy as a hallucinogenic; the intoxicating spice could make you feel as if you were floating. It also was prized for its curative and culinary uses.

  • Ingredients

    Nutmeg.

  • Uses

    If you’re using whole nutmeg, grate it with a microplane or grater with smaller holes. Freshly grated nutmeg is delicious on fresh fruit, oatmeal, or yogurt.

  • Storage

    Store ground nutmeg in an air-tight container away from heat, light, and moisture.

    Whole nutmeg will stay fresh indefinitely, but should always be stored away from heat and moisture. If you nutmeg only occasionally, buying whole nutmeg is the best option because each time it is grated it will provide fresh, fragrant, and flavourful spice.
