Mace Blade is the lacy, bright-red covering of the nutmeg seed. The mace is fastidiously separated from the seed by hand. After blanching, it is flattened, then air-dried at a high temperature until it turns the orange color of high-quality mace, with a flavor similar to but sweeter and milder than nutmeg. The amount of fruit it takes to make 100 pounds of nutmeg will produce only a single pound of these coveted mace blades.
Mace Blade now also comes in our special Longevity jar made of thick, durable, unique glass which blocks out damaging light that causes decay. This airtight, light-proof jar blocks out harmful air, moisture, and light, protecting our spices and preserving their freshness. Our Longevity jar not only looks beautiful and elegant, but it's also completely reusable, eco-friendly, and will last for years. All spices in the Longevity collection come in refill packs, so you only need to get the Longevity jar once for each spice and then just get the refill packs when the spice runs out, reducing waste and creating a sustainable solution for your kitchen. Longevity jar size: 2" diameter, 3.5" high.
