Myristica fragrans

Tree Spice

Mace is the aril (the bright red, lacy covering) of the nutmeg seed shell. The mace is removed from the shell and its broken parts are known as blades. In its natural state, mace is a bright crimson lace. As it is dried, it develops its characteristic aroma but loses its bright red colour. It is flattened and sometimes roughly broken into ‘blades’. It is also sold ground and sometimes still enclosing the nutmeg.

Mace is available whole, broken and ground.
