Green Cuisine Whole Nutmeg
Whole Nutmeg has unique fresh woody flavour with peppery overtones which adds a delicious piquancy to bland dishes like rice pudding, egg, cheese or potato dishes. Also good in close grained meat recipes like pate.

Possession of a Whole Nutmeg was something to boast about and it was once fashionable to carry one about your person in a special container (with its own grater) so that you could could add some into your food or hot chocolate when eating out.

A little added to a wide variety of sweet and savoury foods can give a surprising lift, especially to cheese dishes, and to hot green vegetables, so perhaps we should reintroduce the opportunity for diners to add this spice at table.

In Indian cuisine Whole Nutmeg is known as Jaiphal and mainly used for sweet dishes. It is also used in mulling spices.

Nutmeg whole can be difficult to both hold and grate, so if you don't have a suitable grater ground nutmeg is a useful shortcut.

There is an average of 6 nutmegs in each box.
