Fascinatingly, the nutmeg tree delivers two spices, nutmeg and mace. Nutmeg and mace are essential in Garam Masala and many baked goods. The nuts are contained in the shell to preserve flavour and aroma. The mace is whole and is slightly orange-red.
Nutmeg is a popular spice used in stews and sauces.
To use, cut the nut in small pieces or grate directly
into the pan. Mace, a little less powerful than the
nut, has a slightly sweet undertone, which makes
it an ideal spice for cakes and other desserts. Use the nutmeg flower whole or tear it into small pieces.
