Grenada nutmeg ice cream was the perfect ending to our journey to the Spice Island. I love ice cream of pretty much any flavor and I had never tried nutmeg before, it did not disappoint. Please you must use freshly grated nutmeg, nothing ground will do. Making homemade ice cream is fun and a perfect activity for the end of summer. There are ways to make homemade ice cream if you don't have a machine, just google how to do make ice cream without a machine and you will get multiple results. Either way you should try to make some and nutmeg is excellent!
