Mace has a rich aroma and a strong, warm taste. Mace is the lacy outer covering of nutmeg. Best used sparingly in sauces, soups, desserts, meats, fish, and Moghul dishes.

A "blade" of mace is the dried outer coating of a nutmeg. Mace and nutmeg are the fruit of the tree Myristica Fragrans. Highly valued as a spice in its own right mace is more robust than nutmeg and so is ideal for use in curries and sauces. Mace is an essential ingredient in a classic Bechamel sauce and in a traditional Moghul korma. Also known as "javantry".

Culinary Uses
Mace and nutmeg are very similar, though mace is somewhat more powerful. Mace is a lighter colour and can be used in light-coloured dishes where the darker flecks of nutmeg would be undesirable. A small amount will enchance many recipes, adding fragrance without imposing too much flavour. Mace works especially well with milk dishes like custards and cream sauces. It contributes to flavouring light-coloured cakes and pastries, especially doughnuts. It can enhance clear and creamed soups and casseroles, chicken pies and sauces. Adding some to mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes creates a more interesting side dish. Some beverages improve with a little mace, especially chocolate drinks and tropical punches.
