From the producer:
Our Organic Nutmeg Whole consists of the seeds of an evergreen-like tree, native to the spice islands of Indonesia that have been specially harvested and dried to preserve their unique flavors and aromas. The other form, ground nutmeg, allows for easy application, but can reduce the potency of the natural flavor profile.
Using at Home
The intense spicy-sweetness can be paired with cloves, cinnamon, and allspice (traditional usage) to add the famously irresistible flavor to your favorite holiday baked goods.
Just prior to use grind the seeds, using a spice grinder or similar instrument, and use the powder as you would ground nutmeg.
You can get creative and use it in all sorts of drinks and savory dishes!
Try adding a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg to your next pot of coffee or tea blend or rub some on your meat-of-choice before tossing it on the grill.
