Nutmeg (jaiphal)


Nutmeg is a pit of the fruit obtained from the nutmeg tree. It has a rich warm and sweet flavour, It is available as a whole and as ground. Generally, it is used in few sweet dishes and in some spice blends to impart its delicate sweet flavour. This spice as a whole lasts forever but ground spice loses its aroma and flavour over a certain period of time. Hence it is better to buy the whole nutmeg and grate it whenever required than to buy a ground spice.
