Zachary Said:what does the spice mace do in a recipe?
We Answered:Being so similar, mace and nutmeg can pretty much be used interchangeably. Both spices are warming and highly aromatic, with mace being a little sweeter and more delicate. In North America, neither spice approaches the popularity of cinnamon, so it may be difficult to believe how much in demand these spices once were.
Nowadays, the most common use for mace is in desserts and baked goods, particularly doughnuts, although it can also be used to flavour savoury foods such as lamb, sausages, cheese, casseroles, cream sauces, and stews. It is a component of spice mixtures, including curry powder, garam masala, and ras el hanout. Not surprisingly, it figures prominently in Indian, Caribbean, Moroccan, and Asian cuisine, and is also used in Dutch, French, and British cooking.
