 mace    [MAYS]

This spice tastes and smells like a pungent version of NUTMEG, and for a very good reason . . . mace is the bright red membrane that covers the nutmeg seed. After the membrane isremoved and dried it becomes a yellow-orange color. It's sold ground and, lessfrequently, whole (in which case it's called a "blade"). Mace is used to flavorall manner of foods, sweet to savory. See also  SPICES; HERB AND SPICE CHART.
