Nutmeg is a popular spice used throughout the world for its warm, one-of-a-kind fragrance and flavor that adds dimension to both sweet and savory dishes. This spice has been used for thousands of years and is just as nutritional as it is delicious. Nutmeg is the inner kernel from the fruit of an Indonesian evergreen tree. The whole kernel is oval and approximately one inch long. It is ground into powder and used in many culinary dishes. The essential oils in nutmeg have a carminative effect, which means they help in all digestion. Consuming nutmeg reduces gas, diarrhea, bloating and constipation. Nutmeg also is recognized for its calming effect and assists in sleep and helps with anxiety and stress. It is used as a natural pain reliever for arthritis, toothaches, chronic pain and also improves brain function. Ground nutmeg is a common spice used in natural chewing gum, breath mints, tooth pastes and mouth washes because it helps prevent bad breath.
Nutmeg is similar to allspice, cinnamon and cloves and is added to a variety of sweet recipes including desserts, pies, cookies, puddings, muffins and cakes. It is also a common ingredient to enhance cocktails, wine, teas, coffees, smoothies, and iced drinks. Savory dishes like pasta, potatoes, vegetables, breads, sauces, gravies, casseroles, soups and stews are more delicious thanks to the distinct flavor of ground nutmeg. It is important to note that nutmeg should be added to dishes towards the end of the cooking process so the flavor remains at its height.
