Mace is a spice derived from nutmeg. On a nutmeg seed the lacelike coating is found and it is called as mace. We remove the red color lacy aril from the outer shell of the nutmeg by hand and then it is dried which would become a yellowish-brown mace. Then is finely ground and sold in our sales outlets. Mace is spicier than nutmeg. The bakers use mace while preparing donuts, puddings, cakes, custards and desserts. Also it is used in cheese dishes, sauces, soups, soufflé, fish and poultry.
