  Mace

 


The nutmeg tree produces not one but two spices. The second is mace, which is made
by drying and powdering the lacy red seed-covering surrounding the nut. Several trees
must be harvested to produce even a small amount of mace – a laborious manual
process – so it’s no surprise this spice is so precious. In flavour, it is similar to nutmeg
but lighter and more delicate, and it imparts its red colour to the dishes it flavours.
