  • Better bechamel

  • Beefed-up stock
    Add complexity to homemade chicken and meat stocks by including a blade of mace with your other seasonings.
  • Spice up sweets
    Whizz a mace blade in a spice grinder or pound with a pestle and mortar, then add to vanilla sponge cake mixes, fruit cake batter and gingerbread dough for a delicate hint of spice. It’s also good in ham glazes.
