Mace, Ground

Mace is a highly flavored spice, usually ground, which is made from the dried outer covering of nutmeg. The fragrance and flavor of mace is similar to that of nutmeg. Nutmeg is the seed or kernel inside the nut-like pit of a tropical fruit growing on evergreen trees (Myristica fragrans, of the family Myristicaceae, the nutmeg family) in the East Indies, India, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Brazil. The flowers of these 60-foot tall trees are pale yellow and droop in clusters. When the fruit is ripe, it looks like a golden-yellow pear hanging among shiny, gray-green leaves that are long and pointed. As the fruit continues to ripen, the fleshy part becomes hard until it finally splits open at the top, revealing the yellow to red aril, the dried external fibrous membrane covering the pit. This covering is called mace. See nutritional chart below.
