About Nutmeg Kernels Organic

A spreading, evergreen tree, native to Indonesia produces fruit that yields two distinct spices; nutmeg and mace. To produce nutmeg kernels, the fruit of the tree is split open to reveal the hard-shelled seed. The lacy aril that clings to the shall is mace; the kernel with the shell is nutmeg. Contrary to its name and nutty flavor, nutmeg isn’t a tree nut, but rather a seed. Therefore, this spice is safe to consume by people with tree nut or peanut allergies.

In the Middle Ages, nutmeg was worn as an amulet to fend off injury, disease, and evil forces. Meanwhile in East India and China, nutmeg was considered a powerful aphrodisiac. Although the days of touting nutmeg’s mystical powers have passed, this aromatic spice can still bring some magic to modern-day kitchens with its rich, warm flavors.

One extremely important fact to note is that nutmeg is toxic for dogs. They are attracted to the scent but if ingested, nutmeg can kill them.
