Mace Blade Pieces




Pieces of unground mace are referred to in recipes as ‘blade mace’.

Other Common Names

Blade Mace, Jaffatry. Botanical Name: (Myristica fragrens houtt)

Description & Use

When a Nutmeg fruit is cut open, the first thing that is revealed is the bright red lacy layer of mace, called the aril, which surrounds the nutmeg inside. The mace is peeled off and dried, turning a rusty brown colour. Although the aroma of mace is reminiscent of nutmeg, mace is not generally used in sweet dishes the way nutmeg is. A few ‘blades’ of mace, as the pieces are called, compliment the flavour of steamed fish and vegetables. Mace has no connection at all to ‘mace spray’ an irritant made from capsicum, and so called because a ‘mace’ is also a big stick used for personal protection!

Produce of Indonesia packed in Australia.
