Good to know
Like many other spices, muscat has been more valuable than gold in the past and led to various conquest campaigns. The Dutch even swapped one of their settlements in America for an Indonesian island controlled by the British, known as a nutmeg cultivation area. The settlement, which was exchanged, was called New Amsterdam, now better known as New York. In the 18th century, young, rich men in the US always had a nutmeg and a silver grater with them, so that they could refine their food with nutmeg anytime, anywhere. However, this also led to fraudsters selling curved tree bark as nutmeg – here at Tastyone there is definitely the real nutmeg!

Add finely grated to the dish, but use sparingly. Can be used especially well for fatty and milky foods such as cream, eggs, cheese or white sauces. But also in combination with potatoes or strong vegetables, such as cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or spinach, nutmeg is almost mandatory.
Full taste development
Add towards the end of the cooking time or as finishing, as the essential oils quickly evaporate.
Ideal for combining herbs and spices aromatically. But is also great in hot chocolate or on ice cream.
More zest for life and balance
Mind & Head
The natural antidepressant: nutmeg can be used as a substitute for antidepressants. It is considered an aphrodisiac in some parts of the world, and it is even said to have intoxicating effects; for this, however, about 60 grams of pure nutmeg would have to be consumed, which should then be very difficult. Nevertheless, nutmeg should not be consumed in excess.
Helpful in case of diarrhoea: In Ayurvedic medicine, nutmeg is considered a natural remedy for diarrhoea, which can be attributed to its essential oils.
