Sapote as spice

moh | Apr 12, 2009 11:41 AM

I went into a local spice shop, and bought a sapote seed (whole). It is the pit of the sapote fruit. It has a very intoxicating almond-like scent, and I have been told that it can be used much like nutmeg, grated with a nutmeg grater. I will be experimenting with this in recipes calling for nutmeg, just to see the difference, but I was wondering if anyone knew anything more about this spice? I'm not very good at web searches, and all I found online was references to the fruit.
