Nutmeg is one of the most popular spices which is widely used across the globe for all kinds of dishes. It is made from the seed of the evergreen, nutmeg tree, which is native to Indonesia. From the same tree, we also get another type of spice known as mace. While mace is the film-like substance that covers the seed, nutmeg is the inner seed that is covered by mace.
The seeds of the nutmeg tree are dried out in the sun for about six to eight weeks, during which they shrink away from their seed coats. It is this dried, shrunk seed that we use as a spice. Nutmeg has been used as a spice and a condiment in sweet and savoury dishes for a long time. In India and other South Asian countries it is used as a flavouring agent while preparing meat, and is also used as a main ingredient in various spice blends. In Western countries, it is mostly added in desserts such as apple and pumpkin pie, as well as hot beverages such as coffee, tea, mulled wine, eggnog, etc. Additionally, it is added in cheesy and creamy dishes such as alfredo sauce.
