Ground Nutmeg...Nutmeg is the seed or ground spice of several species of the genus Myristica. Myristica fragrans is a dark-leaved evergreen tree cultivated for two spices derived from its fruit: nutmeg, from its seed, and mace, from the seed covering. The earliest references to the nutmeg tree pinpoint its origin to Moluccas Island, aka Spice Islands, in the Indonesian rain forest. Nutmeg is actually a fruit with a single seed (which makes it a drupe), similar in size to an apricot. It's intertwined, one might say, with a softer substance: mace, another valuable spice harvested at the same time. As the seed matures, the nutmeg kernel splits from the mace in a sort of lace pattern.
