Mace ground: delicate flavouring in sweet and savoury dishes

Mace ground is a very aromatic spice that you can use in both sweet and savoury dishes. In our country we use mace ground mainly in meat dishes (especially stews) and pastries. The well known speculaas also contains, among other spices, mace. Because of its pleasant aroma, the spice is not only used in food, but also in perfumes and liqueurs. You can order mace ground from Natural Spices in different pack sizes. You can buy 500 grams, 1 kilo, 5 kilos and 25 kilos online.

Where does ground mace come from?

Mace is from the same tree as nutmeg, the originally Indonesian nutmeg tree, and therefore has a largely similar flavour. Fruits growing on this nutmeg tree can be compared to apricots in shape. The black kernel on the inside of these fruits is the nutmeg. The colourful membrane around it is the mace. The membrane discolours during the drying process and gets a beautiful, deep orange colour.

The taste difference between mace ground and nutmeg

Mace ground and nutmeg have a very similar taste. The differences between the two are only small. Nutmeg tastes spicy and slightly sweeter than mace. Mace has a milder, but somewhat bitter taste. You can say that mace tastes a little fresher and can best described as a warm, aromatic taste with a spicy edge. In the kitchen, you add mace ground at the start of preparing your dish. This to allow the mix to blend in well with the ingredients. The aroma of nutmeg evaporates more quickly and that is why you only add it at the end of the preparation. By the way, mace also gives colour to your dish.

Is mace ground healthy?

Mace ground is healthy, gluten-free and is known for a number of properties. For example, it is a source of various minerals and contains a variety of vitamins such as vitamins A, B1, B6 and C. The spice supports the body to get rid of toxins and stimulates your immune system. All the more reason to buy a portion online.
