Mace

Organic certified Mace (Myristica fragrans HOUTT) is the ground outer covering (aril) of the nutmeg seed. A piece of ungrounded Mace is called a blade. Mace has a flavor and aroma similar to nutmeg, with slightly more pungency.
Mace lends a warm, fragrant, old world spiciness to many baked goods and sweets. It enlivens vegetables or macaroni and cheese.
