Nutty and Aromatic!

Nutmeg is a very popular spice that’s known for its warm, nutty flavour, making it the perfect addition to comforting sweet and savoury dishes. Nutmeg is a subtle spice that enhances other flavours and adds a special “something” that everyone can taste but cannot place. Nutmeg has a distinctive pungent fragrance and a warm slightly sweet taste; it is used to flavour many kinds of baked goods, sauces, custards, drinks, confections, puddings, potatoes, meats, sausages, vegetables, and mixed beverages.
