Nutmeg Juice




My chef bought this Nutmeg Juice (concentrated) recently, saying it helps to improve digestion. I have just tried...and hmmm...it tastes sour and also a bit sweet (since sugar is added). ;)

Welcome to WW!

I have tried so many juices at Food Festival and Fairs. This doesn't surprise me.

I thought can see you squeeze nutmeg. :(

I've never heard of Nutmeg Juice. It doesn't sound appetizing, but the bottle is eye catching.

I agree with rmgales. It doesn't sound appetizing at all. :(

This sounds like it should be mixed with eggnog or it might be a little strong tasting. Weird yet interesting!!!

crazy working mom said...

I've never heard of it. I'm not sure I'd like it either.
Thanks for stopping by my WW today. :)

Jack said...

Is it used for cooking or drinking?
Interesting, I've never heard of it before today.

Happy Wednesday, thanks for the visit :)

Happy WW! I'm not sure that I would like nutmeg juice...

Thanx for your earlier visit! I invite your blog readers to see one result of our nation's economic crisis ... the Zero-Dollar bill.

Long long time ago, my mum used to made this on her own. The whole process takes time, as she needs to remove skin and seed from all nutmeg. Then to double boil it for about 5 to 6 hours.
Here at Penang, we can get this type of nutmeg drink quite easily, as it serve in most of the Chinese restaurants.

napaboaniya: Yes, many drinks products nowadays. Maybe u can learn more from eastcoastlife.

eastcoastlife: Yeah, u are certainly one of the best food reviewers in SG. ;)

rmgales: Ya, as what tigerfish said, the bottle looks like one containing soy sauce. ;p

shae-shae & crazy working mom: Yes, it might not sound appetizing to some but certainly, u will feel appetize after the drink and start looking for food since it makes u hungry.

ck-ii, carver, lisaschaos, after hours & andrea: It's new to me though i have tried preserved nutmeg and used nutmeg oil before.

dnlee & manker: It tastes sour and a bit sweet since sugar was added.

jack: It's used for drinking. Or perhaps, someone might use it for cooking if there's a recipe which use it as ingredient? ;)

villager: thanks for ur visit. ;)

little inbox: Wow! This sounds interesting to me. Thanks. A real tedious job to get the drink.

Dora said...

Happy WW!

Brenda ND said...

christine said...

Dora said...
