Nutmeg – one of the condiments that adds flavour to dishes

We have a nutmeg tree and we get a harvest every year  The red coating that you see is called mace and mace is very expensive. Nutmeg is used in many dishes

Our nutmeg tree is a haven for birds.  They come in huge groups and chirp away I have a video capturing their chirps.  I call it cacophony

The peculiarity of nutmeg trees is that they are either female or male trees and male trees do not yield. Normally two trees are planted.  But only time will tell which is a male or which is a female.  We were lucky that ours was female.
