Orco’s organic nutmeg is more than just a spice that enhances the taste and smell of food. It comes with an abundance of nutritional value too. Although it’s more commonly used for its flavour than its health benefits, nutmeg contains an impressive array of powerful compounds that may help prevent disease and promote your overall health. Organic nutmeg, a brown-coloured spice, enhances many foods with its rich flavour. Countless recipes and dishes call for it in combination with other spices like cinnamon, cloves and ginger. It is more common to use organic nutmeg in seasonal dishes during the fall and winter, although you can certainly enjoy it all year long if you get your creativity on.
Organic nutmeg is rich in fibre, which helps keep the digestive system healthy and prevent blood sugar from spiking. It’s also a great source of:
• Vitamin A
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin E
Here are some of the ways you can use Organic Nutmeg:
1. Add it to your vegetables:
Organic nutmeg is not just for dessert or sweet recipes. You can also use it on vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, winter squash, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and spinach. Along with organic nutmeg, add a little bit of butter, olive or coconut oil to the vegetables for an intensely flavourful combination.
2. Add it to your bowl of fruits:
Fruits taste and look wonderful all by themselves, and organic nutmeg kicks up both the flavour and the visual appeal of your bowl. Sprinkle some grated Orco organic nutmeg onto raw or cooked apples, bananas, peaches, pears, pineapples or mangoes. Cut up several fruits to make a mixed fruit salad, dust the fruit with organic nutmeg, and squeeze a little fresh lemon evenly onto the dish and voila your tasty and super nutritious fruit salad is ready!
3. Use it in your breakfast meals:
Breakfast meals don't have to be necessarily served only in the morning. They can be a meal no matter what time it is. Using grated organic nutmeg on them greatly enhances their flavour and nutrition. Sprinkle some grated Orco organic nutmeg over the top of your oats, quiche, scrambled eggs, omelettes, pancakes, french toast and other breakfast baked goods like muffins or cupcakes. Do so while the food is still warm and freshly cooked or baked so that the organic nutmeg seeps into the dish nicely. Another tasty possibility is to sprinkle some grated Orco organic nutmeg onto a bowl of warm oatmeal, quinoa or any other breakfast cereal.
4. Add more flavour to desserts:
Orco organic nutmeg goes great not just in dessert recipes, but also on them after they have been baked. Recipes like fruit pies, cakes, custards and cookies are all good candidates for some sprinkle. Sprinkle some grated Orco organic nutmeg evenly over the dessert soon after you take them out of the oven. This way, the organic nutmeg will better integrate itself into the dessert dish, rather than the powder sitting more loosely on the top of the dish. Using organic nutmeg in this way on desserts might even allow you to reduce the amount of sugar or other sweeteners that you may include while cooking your dessert because organic nutmeg adds a slightly sweet-tasting flavour.
5. Add it to your winter drinks:
You can add a special twist to various drinks by sprinkling a little bit of grated Orco organic nutmeg on them. Organic nutmeg gives a slight kick to a mug or cup of hot coffee, hot chocolate, hot tea, eggnog and even cider. You don’t need to measure how much you put in here, just gently add to taste. For even more flavour, sprinkle Orco’s organic cinnamon powder in your drink along with organic nutmeg.
