  • 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. 

    note: the current best-by date on the jar says 9/21, but that is actually incorrect, it should be 9/22. We didn't realize how long mace could last when we launched this spice, and the best by date is easily 2 years from harvest!
