Nutmeg


A versatile spice that changes character depending on how it is used,
the flavour of nutmeg has been compared to mint, bergamot,
bitter lemon and even hazelnuts. Originally native to the Indonesian
island of Banda, it was transplanted to Ceylon by British traders in the
1800s, where it flourished. Only a tiny pinch is needed to 
add a breath of tropical exoticism to any dish.
