Gathering Place nutmeg is grown around the periphy of the spice food forests in Southern India. Our organic farmers cooperative grow multiple crops together, creatiing a biodiverse ecosystem, where nutmeg thrives in the dappled sun and heat.
Gathering Place nutmeg has a warm, sweet yet spicy flavor. As soon as nutmeg is grated its aroma and flavour quickly disappear – a good reason to buy whole nutmeg rather than ground. Nutmeg isn't really a nut, but the kernel of an apricot-like fruit. Used in pie, custard, tarts, cakes, soup, egg dishes and goes well with any vegetable.
It is also rich in many B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin A and many anti-oxidants. Nutmeg is effective in killing a number of cavity-causing bacteria in the mouth.
