Concierge.com's insider take:
They don't call Grenada the "spice island" for nothing. It's the world's second-largest producer of nutmeg (after Indonesia). The spice, which was introduced to Grenada in 1843, has since dominated nearly every aspect of the island's economy and culture: A nutmeg even graces the colorful national flag! Major processing stations in the towns of Grenville and Gouyave are open to the public (Gouyave Processing Station; 473-444-8337), though production has diminished since Hurricane Ivan uprooted more than 80 percent of the nutmeg trees. De la Grenade Industries is a 40-year-old organic operation that produces a range of nutmeg products, from jelly, jam, and syrup to its secret-recipe liqueur (St. George's; 473-440-3241; www.delagrenade.com). Local supermarkets, such as Food Fair on the Carenage, also stock a range of nutmeg goods.
