Mace and nutmeg are two different parts of the same spice – mace is the part that grows outside the nutmeg seed, and its function is to provide the nutrition for the seed’s growth. Nutmeg and mace have a similarly earthy sweet, strong aroma, and a very nice warm satisfying flavor. While nutmeg is usually used in baking, mace is more often used in cooking, particularly as a complement to seafood or vegetables. A little mace provides a wonderful rich aroma to these dishes, and is often used in sauces and gravies for dark meats as well.
