Mace (Ground)

  • In whole form, nutmeg and mace couldn’t look more opposite – nutmeg is a brown seed and mace is a bright, red aril.  But when ground, it would be difficult for most to tell them apart by either aroma or taste. That’s because both spices are found inside the same tropical, nutmeg fruit.

    Mace does have a slightly more delicate flavor than nutmeg, but the difference is so subtle that one can be substituted for the other in most recipes. Try adding our Ground Mace into dessert recipes, as well as many savory dishes like soups & stews.  Click on the "Recipe Ideas" tab to find out more.
