Mace is a spice made from the gum-like reddish substance that cradles the seed of Myristica fragrans, an evergreen species of tree native to Indonesia.

This seed, or nut, is better known to most people as nutmeg. Ground mace has a milder flavor than nutmeg, but is bolder in color.

The spice is widely used to flavor foods and beverages in Asian, Indonesian and Middle Eastern cuisines.

Mace is a spice produced from the dried and ground leathery covering that adheres to the seed of Myristica fragrans, otherwise known as common nutmeg. As spices, ground nutmeg and ground mace share similar flavor profiles, although the latter is milder and not as sweet.

This common baking spice is a traditional ingredient in spice blends that flavor pumpkin pie, mincemeat and mulled wine and cider. Mace is also used in Indian, Asian, Indonesian and Middle Eastern cuisines to enhance a variety of sweet and savory foods.


Description: The nutmeg tree is native to Indonesia. It grows as high as 40 feet and is an evergreen tree. It has a strong aroma and yellow flowers that adorn the limbs. It takes almost 10 years for the tree to bear viable fruit. The fruit of the tree is picked when it ripens. It is then separated into nutmeg seeds and mace.

Safety: Pregnant women should not use mace. Don't take more than 3 g of mace per day. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
