Today's winner is: David Manelsk: Parma, Ohio Nutmeg is one of the best- known fragrant spices. It is the name given to the kernel of the fruit of a tropical tree. There are about 80 species of nutmeg trees and shrubs. The most common- (called "Myris- tica mooschata") is a handsome evergreen with a straight trunk about 25 feet high. It is covered with branches from base to tip The flowers are small and yellow, with a perfume like lilies of the valley. After a period of about eight years of growth, the tree begins bearing, fruit and yields for 25 years. The tree blooms and bears fruit in continuous succession the year round, but the principal harvests occur about three times a year. The fruit is about the size and shape of a pear. When ripe it is golden yellow in color. The fruit opens in halves. Inside is a red, fleshy part, which is the mace, and the nut-like seed. Inside this seed is the portion of the nutmeg used as a spice. The mace can also be dried and used as a spice, and it has a different flavor from nutmeg. Or it may be preserved in spirit as a sweetmeat. After the nuts are separated from the mace, they are dried in ovens until the kernels rattle in the shells. Then the shells are removed. Nutmegs are usually exported while still whole in order to retain their flavor. But nutmegs are used for flavoring food only after thej have been grated. Nuts that are considered inferior are ground and the oil is extracted. This is called "oil of mace" or nutmeg butter, but it is not made from mace. Most nutmegs come from the East Indies, West Indies, Spice Islands and Brazil. The other species of the nutmeg tree produce nuts similar to the nutmeg, but they are poorer in quality. There are also other families of tre'es that produce fruits like the true nutmeg. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. Why is there never a whole day? 2. How would you stop a herd of cattle from charging? 3.
