Mace is the dried, lacy, bight red covering of the nutmeg seed. It takes many nutmeg trees to produce even a small amount of mace which must be removed by hand or knife when the nutmeg is harvested. This makes mace naturally more valuable than nutmeg. With a more delicate flavour than nutmeg, mace is often preferred in light-coloured dishes for the bright orange, saffron-like colour it imparts.
