Caption: Nutmeg fruits. The first fruit has split open, revealing its seed. The aril (red) surrounding the seed is removed and dried to make mace, while the seed is dried and then ground or grated before use. Both mace and the nutmeg seed can be used in a variety of sweet or savoury recipes. The other fruits will split open when they are ripe. Photographed in Grenada.
