Nutmeg, native to the Banda Islands of Indonesia commonly referred to as the Spice Islands, is the seed of a fruit produced by an evergreen tree. This unique tree is one of a few plants that produce two spices, nutmeg and mace, which is the protective outer layer of the nutmeg. The two do share a similar flavor and can be used in place of each other in a pinch.

Unaware that the spices came from one tree, one Dutch official ordered the Moluccan islanders to plant more mace trees, and fewer nutmeg trees.

Nutmeg has a fresh, rich aroma and a woody, bittersweet flavor with hints of clove. When used in cakes, breads, pastries, fruit dishes and pies it pairs well with ginger, cinnamon and cloves. When used in lamb, mutton, meat stews, spinach dishes, veal, vegetable recipes and even pasta sauces, it pairs well with cumin, coriander, pepper and thyme.
