Mystery Spice

Can anybody guess what type of spice is derived from this seed pod? Last week was the first time I'd used by SLR camera in a really long time and this picture happened to be left on the roll from our trip to St. Lucia. It's nutmeg! If I remember correctly, they separate the outer husk, removed the cool red-ish thing, and grind the seed inside to produce nutmeg. Yum, my favorite spice!

    You're half right. The red stuff on the outside of the pod is ground into allspice --mom

  2. Allspice! My second favorite spice!
