Mace grows hand in hand with Nutmeg, and the two have many similarities. Mace is the more delicate spice, and carries gently sweet and pine flavour notes within. Use in small quantities to add great flavour too all kinds of cooking. We find freshly grated Mace on Eggs to be a match made in heaven.

Industry Knowledge... Not a commonly known spice, but with a rich history, Mace is part of the same plant as Nutmeg. Most of the supply comes from the Banda Islands by way of Java and Sumatra. An inferior Mace is obtained from the long nutmeg, dark and very brittle and lacking the fragrant odour and aromatic taste of the official variety. Mace is a very weak hallucinogen; caution and moderation should be exercised. It is often used to extract the more subtle flavours that are often difficult to take from Nutmeg. Mace is the more delicate spice of the two, and thus commands a much higher price in industry.Regency is proud to source top quality whole Mace flowers. While most pieces of Mace look great, large flowers retain the best flavour, as they have yet to release their oils. The smaller pieces, the less concentrated the flavour within, as some has already left. Although it is notoriously hard to keep the flowers intact, Regency can ensure a high percentage to be whole upon delivery, thus providing the best taste. Learn more about Mace.
