The best-quality nutmeg from the Moluccas Islands in Indonesia are harvested at the start of the rainy season when the ripe yellow fruit is split open to reveal the nutmeg seed. The mace covering the nut is separated by hand, and the seeds are sun-dried before they’re dipped in a solution and further dried to preserve their luster. Our high-grade Nutmeg has a sweet, camphorous aroma with hints of clove and a bittersweet, woody flavor.
Nutmeg now also comes in our special Longevity jar made of thick, durable, unique glass which blocks out damaging light that causes decay. This airtight, light-proof jar blocks out harmful air, moisture, and light, protecting our spices and preserving their freshness. Our Longevity jar not only looks beautiful and elegant, but it's also completely reusable, eco-friendly, and will last for years. All spices in the Longevity collection come in refill packs, so you only need to get the Longevity jar once for each spice and then just get the refill packs when the spice runs out, reducing waste and creating a sustainable solution for your kitchen. Longevity jar size: 2" diameter, 3.5" high.
