Nutmeg can be found all over Penang in the markets as whole fruit and both candied and pickled. Using the nutmeg to make juice is a lovely quirky Penang pastime. These are produced from Nutmeg syrup (in bottles and commercially produced) that can be bought in the markets and shops. The real squeezed nutmeg juice is a white liquid that is often served with a sour plum floating in the bottom. It is sweet and savoury at the same time with the exotic and surprisingly delicate taste of nutmeg.
