nutmeg

    Prev Next

    First time using the whole stuff. Can I tell you? Those brain-like lines in there (dark red!) really, really squick me out. Like fingernails on a chalkboard. I felt like I was filing something alive. Ghhuuh. Am I a total weirdo about this?

      I love whole nutmeg, so much better than buying it already ground. But I totally get the freaky factor, I always thought it looked like brains too!

      If you really want to be weirded out, try looking at fresh nutmeg. Did you know that mace (the spice and the stuff in the spray) is actually red webbing that grows on the outside of nutmeg? And that it's really the seed of a fruit?
      It weirds me out too, but the flavor is sooo much better.

      Wow, how *cool* is fresh nutmeg?

      I'll bet using whole nutmeg has changed your life --so rich, perfumed and flavourful. Try it in something uncooked to really experience the difference --like eggnog, if you're that kind of girl.

      Best smell ever.
