Guaranteed to wow you. If not, we'll refund or replace it!

Our stone nutmeg is hand-picked at peak ripeness from a single orchard in Zanzibar. Nutmeg is the inner pit of a yellow stone fruit that splits open when the valuable pit is ripe.

Our nutmeg comes whole and can be grated or ground into pasta sauce, cream sauces and desserts. This is truly some of the best nutmeg in the world, harvested by hand, dried in the sun and delivered directly to your kitchen.

  • Origin: Zanzibar, Tanzania
  • Process: Sun-dried
  • Ingredients: 100% EU-certified organic whole nutmeg (Myristica fragrans)
  • Tasting notes: Citrus Peel • Eucalyptus • Tropical Warmth

COOKING

SOURCING

Our nutmeg comes straight from a spice cooperative on the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania. Spices were introduced to the islands in the 1800s, when they were ruled by the Omani sultanate, and many of our partner farms have been growing spices for generations.

As with all spices, freshness matters for nutmeg. March is nutmeg season in Zanzibar, and our current lot of nutmeg was harvested last March. Nutmeg is the meat of the pit of a stone fruit, similar to an apricot, and mace is the red, finger-like membrane that surrounds the pit. The fruit itself has a bitter, astringent flavor, but the mace and nutmeg are gorgeous, sweet and fragrant.

Burlap & Barrel is the sole importer of spices from Zanzibar, including stone nutmeg, to the US, and our nutmeg (like all our spices from Zanzibar) is organic.

Meet the Farmer: Meet Mzee Sio and his granddaughter Yusra. Along with his wife, he owns one of the most productive (and successful) nutmeg orchards in Zanzibar, located about an hour outside of Stonetown. Walking through the orchard with us, Mzee Sio pointed up and said "Everything my children have is because of these trees."

Wonderful nutmeg

Delicious! I'm going to have to find more excuses to use it because I generally go through nutmeg quite slowly and this jar is a generous size!

Amazingly fresh!!

There is nothing like grating stone nutmeg and having the aroma hit your senses!! I have been searching recipes that would allow more use of this beautiful spice before the holidays. I am so hooked on B&B!
