NUTMEG AND MACE

There is no way we could operate in Indonesia and not tackle this dynamic spice. Nutmeg is native to Indonesia and thought to be discovered by the Dutch for its value. It is the only tropical fruit that is the source of two different spices. Mace, the red leathery covering that protects the seed, 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 possibly find.

In pursuing our philosophy to be the best, we are proud to offer organic aflatoxin free nutmeg. It is less difficult for harvesters to gather the nutmeg from the ground. However, this allows for contamination and excess moisture to support the growth of mold that leads to the harmful toxin. We are at an incredible advantage because we are so close to origin and can monitor the potential presence of aflatoxins. Through a collaborative process and strong relationship with our farmers, plantations use Tripper methods for the highest quality and safest product.

Nutmeg is known for its detoxifying effects and its benefits regarding digestive health.

It is commonly used to add a spicy warmth to dishes. Use it in custards and pies or even use it to season meats and fish to add a depth of flavor.

PROCESS

Plantation

Sangihe island is the major source of our nutmeg. Many of our farmer’s trees are more than 100 years old. New trees are planted to replace what is consumed, and preserve the environment

Harvest

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

Grading

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

Processing

We test for volatile oil content before grinding. Our spices are always organic and free of harmful chemicals and pesticides
