Jiva Organic Nutmeg Whole has a very warm, highly aromatic – sweetish taste. It is very similar to mace in aroma and taste. Nutmeg is widely used in honey cakes, rich fruit cake, fruit desserts, and fruit punch. Nutmeg will make savoy dishes deeper, rich dishes lighter, and sweet and baked dishes balanced. The quality of the nutmeg we source is unparalleled. It’s a must-have in your kitchen. With whole nutmeg you will want to use a microplane (or the smallest holes on a cheese grater) to grate it.
