Discover the enchanting world of Calabash nutmeg, or Monodora myristica, a spice that dances between the familiar warmth of nutmeg and its own unique symphony of flavors. With each sprinkle, you'll taste a delightful blend of peppery zest and sweet whispers, all wrapped in a rich, woody aroma that carries a breath of eucalyptus and a gentle touch of spice.

In the kitchen, the true spirit of Calabash nutmeg comes alive when it's finely ground, releasing its complex essence into your culinary creations. Cherished in the heart of West African cooking, this spice is a star in enhancing soups, stews, and sauces with a cozy depth and inviting warmth that's just like a hug from an old friend.

To capture the full splendor of Calabash nutmeg's flavors, sprinkle it in as your dish nears completion. This gentle approach lets the spice's delicate aroma weave through your meal, creating a tapestry of taste that doesn't fade under the heat. Its versatility shines when mingled with fellow spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom—making it a perfect companion for both savory feasts and sweet treats.

Known by many names—Efuru, Ehuru, Ehiri, and Ariwo powder—it's a cherished gem in African, especially Nigerian and Ghanaian, traditions.

Embrace the magic of moderation; just a pinch of Calabash nutmeg is enough to transform your dish into an adventure of flavors.

Offered to you in a collection of 10 precious seeds in a beautful little corked bottle, each seed holds the potential to elevate your meal to an experience that will be remembered long after the last bite.
