Fresh Nutmeg

We have a nutmeg tree and we get nutmegs every year. The nutmeg fruit cracks on the tree itself and then drops down.  

The outer cover is discarded and the mace – red in colour – is separated from the nutmeg.  Both the nutmeg and the mace is then dried. 

Nutmeg and mace are both spices that are used in many dishes.  Both have a strong pleasant smell. Birds get attracted to this tree and they come in groups and chirp away. 

The peculiarity of a nutmeg tree is that one has to plant two trees to bear fruit.
