Nutmeg Historical Snippets:

Nutmeg has been around since the 7th century. It was once considered to be extremely highly prized in Medieval Europe. Also in ancient Indian and Chinese royalties as they were known to use nutmeg for hallucinogenic reasons and therefore carried it around in small boxes ready to be added to drinks. The spice became very expensive during the Elizabethan era as it was believed to ward off the Black Plague. During the 18th century it was a valuable spice in the trading market and by the 19th century it was being used throughout many English dishes.
