Ground from the lacy outer covering of the nutmeg, commonly called "blades," mace imparts a sweet and pungent flavor that is different from nutmeg and even complements it. French cuisine sometimes calls for them to be used in tandem to balance the flavors. Try mace as an accent in bechamel sauce, creamed spinach, or spanikopita.
