Knowledge Bank- Nutmeg

This is good old #nutmeg it’s called in 5 different languages, #Muscade (#French), #Muskatnuss (#German), #muskatnøtt (#Norwegian), #Muskatnod (#Danish), #Muskottipahkina(#Finnish). Amazing how they all start with an M and very similar huh! Unfortunately, we didn’t get an #African name. It looks like we just call it #nutmeg. #Nutmeg is a fragrant spice used in cooking, juicing /drinks and baking. It also has a lot of health benefits including its ability to relieve pain, soothe indigestion, strengthen cognitive function, detoxify the body, boost skin health, alleviate oral conditions, reduce insomnia, increase immune system function, prevent leukemia and improve blood circulation (source organicfacts). With all these benefits, I’ll be adding nutmeg to almost any thing I can think of. I do enjoy it in smoothies, tea, juice and porridge. I hope you do too and will use this spice more.
