Mace comes from the nutmeg tree which is native to Indonesia and Grenada. Mace surrounds and protects the nutmeg, which is the inner kernel of the apricot-type fruit of this tree. It is similar in taste to nutmeg but slightly more pungent.
The Roman philosopher Pliny wrote about nutmeg and mace in the first century.
Fresh blade mace is deep red to purple and only achieves its brownish gold color when completely dried. Whole blade mace is a staple in mulling spices and many pickling spice recipes. <\p>
