Once considered a favorite spice in colonial America, whole nutmeg is more aromatic than the pre-ground spice. Ours comes from the West Indies, considered to be the source of the highest quality nutmeg available. Use to flavor baked goods, vegetables, meat and cheese dishes, or sprinkle over the top of hot chocolate, eggnog and coffee drinks. Add a pinch to cream sauces or potato soup for exotic flavor!

For centuries, the word "India" referred to a fabled kingdom in the East known to the western world for its silk, porcelain, spices, sugar, and tea. These treasures traveled westward by caravan over the legendary Silk Road, then from Arabian ports to Europe by sea.
In actuality, "India" was not a single place or kingdom, but a composite of many countries and cultures as yet unknown to Western civilization.
The desire of Europeans to discover "India" gave birth to the Age of Exploration, followed by three centuries of expanding trade and colonization. It also gave birth to new nations. America grew strong and prosperous on trade with the East.
The never ending quest for the exotic has given rise to many legends. Inspired by such tales, INDIA TREE, under the leadership of Gretchen Goehrend, Founder and President, is creating a legend of its own by bringing together under the INDIA TREE label an extraordinary assortment of quality products from around the world.
