Nutmeg comes from the evergreen native to the Banda Islands. It has a colorful history involving colonial powers who committed outrageous acts to preserve their monopoly on this spice. The aroma of nutmeg is a favorite of cooks everywhere. Our whole nutmeg yields that terrific flavor and aroma you're looking for in baking. But try it as a topping on cheese dishes in barbeque sauces and with green beans as well.
