Did you know nutmeg, mace and cacao have been important crops for Grenada since colonization by Europeans? The pungent warmth of nutmeg is a used in dishes both savory and sweet, and one could hardly imagine their holiday eggnog without a dash of nutmeg! The outer seed covering of the nutmeg seed is ground to make mace, a delicate spice used in the flavoring of meat and fish. Grenada also produces 900 tons of cacao a year, and the International Cocoa Organization recognizes 100% of Grenada’s cacao as some of the finest in the world, a privilege shared by only 10 other countries in the world!
