Nutmeg is known for its warm, spicy aroma and wide use. You often find it in pumpkin pies and cakes, but it can also give sweet and savoury food that extra kick of flavour. Nutmeg is especially suited for creamy or cheesy dishes such as lasagne, creamed spinach and mashed potatoes (with butter, a lot).
Add freshly grated Nutmeg to custards, pancake batter and banana-based desserts. Stir some into your chocolate mousse. Sprinkle Nutmeg shavings on top of hot chocolate or an espresso. Taste it. Smile. Have some more.
Nutmeg should be grated - not ground – freshly onto hot food at the end of the cooking process. That’s how you preserve the flavour of its fresh oils. All RIVSALT graters work perfectly with Nutmeg.
Nutmeg is dried and peeled fruit kernels of the Nutmeg tree [Myristica fragrans]. Ours are organic and handpicked by a small farmers' cooperative on the Indonesian archipelago of the Moluccas, known as the "Spice Islands".
And that’s Nutmeg in a nutshell.
