Other Information:

Nutmeg is grown in Sri Lanka, India, South East Asia, Malaysia, Jamaica, and the Caribbean Islands.  This evergreen tree has a pyramid-shaped growth and rough, intensely aromatic, scented leaves which are an elongated, oval shape with a dark green top side and a whitish underside.  Nutmeg is a seed, rather than a nut.  When fully mature it splits in two, exposing the brown seed which is the nutmeg.  Store in a cool, dry place.

Cream Cheese Frosting:  Combine 6 tablespoons butter with 3 ounces cream cheese.  Add 1 tablespoon milk and 1 teaspoon Spice Barn Vanilla.  Stir in 1 3/4 cups sifted confectioners sugar.

Cheese Soup
4 small carrots
3 celery stalks
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/4 cup flour
3 cups hot chicken broth
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
8 ounces whole tomatoes, undrained, chopped
10 drops hot pepper sauce
1/8 teaspoon Spice Barn Ground Nutmeg
1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
1 1/2 cups whipping cream, heated

Add carrots and celery to 1 1/2 cups broth.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer till tender, about 15 minutes.  Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.  Sauté onion until transparent. Blend in flour and slowly add broth.  Cook over low heat until thickened.  Blend in cheese and stir until melted.  Add tomatoes and undrained vegetables.  Season with pepper sauce, salt to taste, nutmeg and wine.  Just before serving stir in hot cream.  Garnish with parsley.

Customer Tip:
Use very small equal parts of nutmeg & ground savory to enhance the flavor of everything (1/8 teaspoon for green salads).  No matter what kind of dish you are creating, it blends and enriches the flavors.  I use it in Italian sauces, Spanish foods, on all types of vegetables and vegetable salads...anywhere I use other herbs. To get an idea of how this works, try smelling nutmeg, smelling savory, then smelling both together.  It becomes a spice blend that makes your mouth water.
