Albert Ménès whole nutmegs are selected for their flavour quality, their beautiful round shape and perfect size. Nutmeg seeds are sorted by hand and packed in their workshop in France. A small grater is included in the bottle, making them easy to use. Originally from the Maluku Islands in Indonesia, also known as the Spice Islands, nutmeg was introduced to Europe by the Arabs in the 16th century, and is now considered one of the most valuable spices in the world. Used in many spice blends (curry, ras el hanout etc.) as well as in French gastronomy, its powerful perfume is highly appreciated. When the fruits of the nutmeg tree reach maturity, they release their stones, which must be cut open to extract the seed: the nutmeg. Mace is also increasingly used and  appreciated in cooking.

Supplied whole, Albert Ménès nutmegs retain their flavours all the way until used. Grated at the last moment, they reveals their delicate notes of bergamot and lemon. It enhances cheese soufflés, mashed potatoes, quiches and gratins, and gives sauces a warm, woody flavour. Nutmeg is also used in many winter desserts and spice blends.
