The Spicy History of Your Favorite Spices
SPICE: Nutmeg The nutmeg tree is the only tropical tree that provides two different spices, nutmeg and mace. The tree is native to the Molucca Islands of Indonesia, which is also where cloves come from. The first non-natives to discover the islands were Arab spice traders, who kept the location of the spice-bearing islands a secret. A few hundred years ago, a small bag of nutmeg would have brought enough money for the holder to be financially independent for the rest of his life.
