Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans from the Myristicaceae family) is the seed of a tropical tree and has an aromatic, sweet, warm and rich flavour. A native to the Spice Islands, this is one of the sought-after spices that Columbus sailed the ocean blue in search of. These days, Indonesia and Grenada are the world's main sources of mace and nutmeg.

Nutmeg tastes like the holidays, and most people add it to holiday spirits like mulled wine, eggnog and cider, as its warm, sweet flavor is a pleasant addition. In addition to holiday beverages, baked sweets and puddings, nutmeg is often paired with cheese dishes and fillings and creamy sauces.

Nutmeg is a traditional flavouring for cakes, gingerbreads, biscuits and fruit or milk puddings. Today, nutmeg's popularity has shrunk and the spice is less used, still most in Arab countries, Iran and Northern India, where both nutmeg and mace appear in delicately flavoured meat dishes.
