What Is Ground Nutmeg?

Nutmeg, the seed from a tropical evergreen tree, has a rich, piney, camphor-like aroma. The flavor is nutty, spicy, bittersweet and warm, with echoes of clove. The potent flavor in our Nutmeg Powder comes from the amount of volatile oil it contains. Our nutmeg delivers, as a minimum, 7% volatile oil by weight; to qualify as viable commercial nutmeg must have a volatile oil content of 5%.


The nutmeg tree is unique in that it produces two spices from the same fruit. Nutmeg, despite its name, is not the nut. It is the seed of the fruit, which looks a little bit like a cross between a fig and a pear. There’s a brown nut and once that is cracked you’ll find an interior hull. That hull is wrapped in an aril made of fibrous red tendrils. Once the aril is dried, it can be ground to powder and voila! We have the second spice, mace. The fruits split when ripe and ready for harvest, so they do not travel well. Inferior fruits are processed for their oil while the other fruits are eaten locally.


Tips From Our Kitchen


The flavor of ground nutmeg goes hand in hand with holiday treats, but it’s found in a wide range of everyday products, like packaged baked goods, tortellini, and Coca-Cola. Nutmeg is often associated with baked goods, like banana or Pineapple Zucchini Quick Bread, or warm and cozy beverages; can you imagine hot chocolate or Masala Chai without a sprinkling of nutmeg across the top? But it can be used beyond the bakery shelves. It’s a great secret ingredient in corn chowder and lamb meatballs. Add it to falafel or lentil stew. It adds a deeper complexity to jerk chicken, which would be dangerously one-note without it. It’s often found mixed with ricotta in stuffed pasta dishes, and adds woodsy personality to a classic German Spaetzle. I personally do not consider sautéing spinach without a bit of nutmeg powder stirred in toward the end of cooking. We also have Whole Nutmeg available, which you can grind yourself with a microplane or a specialized nutmeg grater.

2 to 3 teaspoons of ground nutmeg is equal to one whole nutmeg.
