This is what a nutmeg looks like, before it is ground up into the powder most people would recognize as nutmeg. It grows on a tree and the seeds, as you can see, look very interesting: a brown seed with a bright red lattice over it.

Nutmeg is quite powerful and is mostly used in small doses for flavoring. It can be used in either savory dishes, mostly with white sauces such as ‘bechamel’ (or homemade mac & cheese for example) or sweet things, it is used a lot to flavor hot cocoa (kako tea) here.
