Benefits of Nutmeg
Nutmeg is not one spice, but two. Mace is also derived from the nutmeg fruit. Youve probably used nutmeg in many dessert dishes, but it also works well in savory recipes. The nutmeg tree is evergreen, with oblong eggshaped leaves and small, belllike light yellow flowers that give off a distinct aroma when in bloom. The fruit is light yellow with red and green markings, resembling an apricot or a large plum.
