Nutmeg in a Nutshell
Nutmeg is a spice that is harvested from an aromatic evergreen tree that can grow over 66 feet tall. Its fragrant flowers and edible, yellow fruit are signature characteristics of the tree. Nutmeg comes from the seed of the fruit, which is dried and then left as is, grated, ground, or crushed. The nutmeg we carry is ground and therefore a stronger flavor than nutmeg that is grated or crushed. This enables the spice to blend effortlessly into your food. 1 whole nutmeg is equal to 2-3 teaspoons of Champion Ground Nutmeg, so a little goes a long way.
