Hey!

The nutmeg comes in an outer pod which keeps it super fresh, and needs to be removed before use. Crack it open with a nutcracker or with the flat side of knife, and proceed to grate the inner nutmeg as usual.

  • Grown by Harish Manoj Kumar & Karthikeyan Palaniswamy on their family estate at the base of the Western Ghats alongside their award-winning Anamalai Cacao. Your nutmeg is fully tree ripened for maximum flavor and oil content, which keeps it aromatic in your kitchen for longer! Manoj is a regenerative farmer and has converted the entire estate to be 100% chemical free since 2012, a change that has caused the nutmeg trees with their shallow root systems to really flourish and transform as the soil has gotten more and more nourishment.
