Whole Nutmeg comes from a large evergreen tree native to Indonesia. Once the fleshy fruit has ripened and dried, it splits open. Inside is the nutmeg seed, enclosed by the scarlet aril, which is dried to become mace. Whole Nutmeg is superior because of the fresh aroma it produces when freshly ground. Whole Nutmeg is used for flavoring many desserts and sweet dishes, and is also common in spinach, lamb dishes and in sausage. Whole Nutmeg is also good in cheese sauces.
