Recipe by WizzyTheStick
Known as the Spice Isle, Grenada produces one third of the world's nutmeg. DO NOT substitute powdered nutmeg in this recipe. Once it is ground, nutmeg soon loses the oils which give it flavour and taste so do yourself a 'flavour' and never use that pre-ground stuff again.

OMG! This is absolutely delicious. I've had my ice cream maker for two years and this is the first I've used it--what an initiation. I would highly recommend this recipe. I am already thinking of what I can serve at my next dinner club so I can make this as the dessert. Thanks for posting.
