  SJ09-2120.JPG - This is nutmeg in the shell. The "nut" is really the pit of the nutmeg fruit. When the fruit ripens, it falls to the ground and is harvested. The hard pit is surrounded by a red fleshy membrane that is the spice "mace." Once the pits are sun dryed, they will keep for years. To use the spice you break the thin dark shell of the pit and grate the meat of the nut.
