#Post22 #Ingredient4 Nutmeg&Mace

Nutmeg is a spice, the seed from several species of tree in the genus Myristica. Mace is a similar-tasting spice made from the dried lacy reddish covering or aril of that seed.
This is the only tropical fruit that is the source of two different spices, obtained from different parts of the plant. Several other commercial products are also produced from the trees, including essential oils, extracted oleoresins, and nutmeg butter.
