Arguably one of the most well known spices by name, Nutmeg is one of the most flavourful spices in the world, and also one of the most expensive. Freshly grate and add to almost any food to impart a fragrant sweet and herbal flavour. This season our Nutmeg has been freshly flown in from India, and we find it best used for desserts, as well as almost all African and Indian cooking.
Please note: Regency freshly ground nutmeg will have some small clumps, this is because ours has a very high oil content.

Industry Knowledge... Nutmeg, historically native only to a small cluster of small volcanic islands in Indonesia, is now cultivated around the world with varying success. Regency has found the best tasting Nutmeg seed in Eastern Java, Indonesia. The seed here grows to be extra large in size, and this season better than Indian Nutmeg in taste. Nutmeg grows with an outer layer of Mace, and as such the two have a similar flavour profile, albeit different uses due to their different physical properties. Our Mace is sourced from it's native home in Indonesia - where it grows to taste best. Another hidden secret about Nutmeg is that it is a very weak hallucinogen; caution and moderation should be exercised when handling larger quantities of the spice.Nutmeg is processed by first removing the Mace, then drying over a slow charcoal fire for several weeks. In addition, it is also often sundried. Once thoroughly dried, they rattle in the shell, which is cracked with a mallet. The nutmegs are then graded and sold at a range of prices to suit different markets. Regency's First Selection Grade is the best available in the trade, and for the first time, it is being brought unmixed and pure to its name, directly to consumers. Learn more about Nutmeg.
