About that nutmeg . . .

Sometimes it sounds like a nut – but it’s not. If you’re managing nut allergies among family and friends, you probably bump into the nutmeg question, as we do, this time of year. I lace my pumpkin pies with nutmeg, and our nut-allergy-positive family members and friends freely indulge.  Nutmeg is not a nut, but a spice that you can trace for yourself to a large evergreen native to the Spice Islands.

Go nutmeg and enjoy the best of the upcoming season.
