Nutmeg (Ground, Organic)

Nutmeg is the seed of a tropical tree that takes nearly a decade to flower. Once harvested, the seed is separated from the veins of mace that engulf it and dried.Nutmeg is an Old World spice, once highly prized and literally worth its weight in gold. At one time, ground nutmeg was a popular additive to snuff. In Medieval Europe, nutmeg was thought to be a remedy for the plague. Today, most people are familiar with ground nutmeg as a baking spice and the finishing touch for a cup of hot cocoa.
