   Introduction

Nutmeg is a spice harvested from plants of the Myristica genus. It comes from the plants seed, and its outer red membrane is scrapped to form the spice form. Nutmeg is used in a variety of cuisines including eggnog, cookies, pies, sweet potatoes and much more. The essential oil of a seed can be beneficial medically but nowadays it is being abused to get high more than a treatment.


   Description

 

Nutmeg, spice consisting of the seed of the Myristica fragrans, a tropical, dioeciously evergreen tree native to the Moluccas or Spice Islands of Indonesia. The nutmeg seed is encased in a mottled yellow, edible fruit, the approximate size and shape of a small peach. The fruit splits in half to reveal a net-like, bright red covering over the seed. This is the aril which is collected, dried and sold as mace. Under the aril is a dark shiny nut-like pit, and inside that is the oval shaped seed which is the nutmeg. Nutmegs are usually sold without the mace or hard shell. They are oval, about 25 mm (1 in) in length, lightly wrinkled and dark brown on the outside and lighter brown on the inside. Nutmeg is sold whole or ground, and is labeled as ‘East Indian’ or ‘West Indian’ indicating its source. Whole nutmeg may be coated with lime to protect against insects and fungus, though this practice is giving way to other forms of fumigation.
