NUTMEG & MACE
Nutmeg is native to Indonesia and the only tropical fruit that is the source of two different spices.
ORIGINE NUTMEG & MACE
Nutmeg is much more than a classic holiday spice. It was so highly coveted by the Dutch, it was once worth more than its weight in gold. Mace, the red leathery covering that protects the seed, is its little-known counterpart. It has a sharp kick of nutmeg flavor. At a time when many companies are cutting corners to get the cheapest price for nutmeg, we offer only the purest small batches of the best nutmeg you can find.
In our pursuit for the best, we are proud to offer organic nutmeg. It is less difficult for harvesters to gather nutmeg from the ground but nutmeg that has rested on the ground is susceptible to contamination and excess moisture that supports the growth of mold. Fortunately, we are at an incredible advantage because we are so close to

3. End Customer
Sangihe Island is the major source of our nutmeg & mace. Many of our farmer’s trees are more than 100 years old.
The first harvest of a nutmeg tree takes place 7-9 years after planting. When the fruit turns a yellowish color it is ready to be plucked The flesh of the fruit is split directly in the field and the nutmeg seed is extracted.
Mace is separated from the nutmeg shell and set to dry until leathery material turns an amber color. Under the right conditions, the mace takes 3 hours to dry and the nutmeg takes 5 days.
We test for volatile oil content before grinding. We offer organic nutmeg that is free of harmful chemicals and pesticides.
