History: Nutmeg has been used in medicine since at least the 7th century, and was highly prized in Medieval Europe for its culinary and medicinal uses. Muslim sailors noted it as an extremely valuable commodity. In Elizabethan England, Nutmeg was believed to have the ability to ward off the Black Plague, and so it became very expensive. Until the mid-1800s, the Banda Islands were the worlds only source of Nutmeg. Long and bloody wars were fought amongst European countries to secure control of these Islands. Commercial production of Nutmeg now exceeds 9,000 tons a year.
