Lets Care For Ourselves – Lets Use Mace Oil

Since ancient times nutmeg and its oil were being used in Chinese and Indian traditional medicines for illnesses related to the nervous and digestive systems. The compounds in this spice such as myristicin and elemicin have been found to have stimulant properties on brain.

Nutmeg oil contains eugenol, which has been used in dentistry for toothache relief. The oil is also used as a local massage to reduce muscular pain and rheumatic pain of joints.

Freshly prepared decoction with honey mix has been used to relief of -

  • Nausea
  • Gastritis
  • Indigestion ailments

The trees which produce both nutmeg and mace are large evergreens native to the Moluccas but which are now grown elsewhere in the tropics, notably Grenada in the West Indies. The trees can reach a height of 18-24 m (60-80 ft), and are either male or female. One male per ten to twelve female trees is the norm in plantations, resulting in them being known as harem trees!

The trees do not flower or fruit until about eight or nine years old (thus cannot be sexed until then) and yield about 100 fruits; by the time they are 30 years old, they can yield an average crop of 3 – 4,000 fruit a year. Trees (Myristica fragrans) can bear for a good 70 years.

Yellowish flowers are followed by large yellow apricot- or plum-like fruits. When they split open, these reveal the black seed (the nutmeg) wrapped in its red lacy aril (the mace). Both spices are dried separately, and the major producers are the Moluccas and Grenada, the latter exporting some 2,000 tonnes to the US each year. Nutmeg has always been more available and popular than mace, which is much more expensive; this is not surprising as mace equals one-fifth of the weight of the whole seed, and only 75 g (3 oz) mace are gained from 100 nutmegs.

Mace Oil – Significant Spice

Mace essential oil is one wonderful essential oil that deals with quite a lot many internal and external problems of the human body very effectively. The oil is absolutely pure and that can be owed to the fact that the souce of the oil is strong and pure.

Mace essential oil, can be used for flatulent dyspepsia, nausea, diarrhea, dysentery and rheumatism. Both Mace and Nutmeg help digestion in stomach weakness, but if used in excess may cause over-excitement. They increase circulation and body heat. They have been employed in pestilential and putrid fevers, and with other substances in intermittent fevers, and enter into the composition of many French medicaments.

The fruits, smooth and yellow, resemble a pear grooved by a longitudinal furrow and containing a single erect seed about 1 1/4 inches long. The nucleus being the wrinkled nutmeg. The fleshy, irregular covering, scarlet when fresh and drying, yellow and brittle, is the mace. The essential oil is made by steam (or water) distillation of the dried orange-brown aril or husk.

Mace the tree is a small evergreen, not more than 40 feet in height, with smooth, grayish-brown bark, green on the younger branches. The alternate leaves are -Oblong-ovate

  • Acute
  • Entire
  • Smooth
  • Dark-green

The flowers are very small and unisexual.

Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans) has been used for centuries, particularly as a remedy for kidney and digestive problems; nutmeg oil is obtained from an evergreen tree of the Myristicaeae plant family. The tree grows up to sixty five feet in height with small, yellow flowers and fruit, shaped like a small peach; the bark of the tree is smooth and gray-brown in color. It is native to the Molucca Islands and cultivated in the West Indies, Indonesia and Sri Lanka.

Ancient Indian and Chinese royalty carried ground nutmeg in small, ivory boxes and added the substance to drinks for hallucinogenic reasons; in Malaysia, pregnant women used nutmeg in the final weeks of their confinement in the belief it would strengthen the uterine muscle for labor. The Romans used nutmeg to make incense.

Nutmeg was a valuable spice for trading; both the British and the French smuggled nutmeg seeds in the eighteenth century. By the nineteenth century, ground nutmeg was being used in many English recipes; it became a popular addition to Christmas eggnog in the United States.

Chef’s Favourite Spice – Mace

Whenever my mom used to mutton stew…I saw her secretly adding this powder to it…and the taste of the dish and its aroma…used to be wild-hunger-instigating…There were certain aunts whose lives revolved around their kitchen and food…they kept prodding mom to disclose to them the complete recipe of the stew to which mom modestly pretended to shy away and fobbed them off saying there was nothing special or unusual about the dish…

 I was never a kitchen person…so tho’ I knew there always was something ‘special’ in mom’s ‘usual’ dishes…but never bothered to ask…But today when I have to cook myself…I realize…I should’ve asked mom her ‘secret’ spice… 

And again…I feel it’s okay…what are search engines for? Laying the ins and outs in front of you at just a click…And that’s exactly how I got to know about this spice called ‘Mace’… 

I’ll brief you about this wonderful and now a part of my secret pack of ‘spices’…Mace is the aril (it’s the bright red…lacy covering) of the nutmeg seed shell…The mace actually is removed from the shell and its broken parts that are called blades…And it’s a fact that the past of mace is closely tied to the history of nutmeg…though the two items have been treated separately…Because the yield of mace is much less than nutmeg’s it has had greater value…A pile of fruit large enough to make one hundred pounds of nutmeg produces a single pound of mace… 

I think I should brief you of its related history simultaneously…It’s of the time when the Dutch controlled the Moluccas (the Spice Islands)…one colonial administrator sent orders that the colonists should plant fewer nutmeg trees and more mace trees…Reason being…Mace had made a market and place for itself…
I am sure you must be eager to know about the itself now…hmm…Well…In its natural state…mace is a bright crimson lace up to 35 mm long…encasing the brown nutmeg in irregular…fleshy lobes…As it is dries…it develops its characteristic aroma but loses its bright red colour…Mace from the West Indies is a yellowish brown colour and with fewer holes than mace from East Indian nutmegs which are more orange when dried….The mace from either locale can become brittle and horny…though the best quality mace will retain some pliability and release a  little oil when squeezed…It is also sold ground and sometimes  still enclosing the nutmeg…

There is not much of preservations needed for this ultimate spice…Dried mace pieces are not easy to crush….Ready-ground mace is easier to use…but will deteriorate much more quickly…Whole mace pieces can be steeped in liquid and then the liquid can be used…or the mace pieces can be removed after cooking…You know just one ‘blade’ is strong enough to add taste to a meal of almost four to six portions….

You won’t be surprised to know…Like I mentioned initially…Mace and nutmeg are very similar…though mace is somewhat more powerful…Mace is a lighter colour and can be used in  light-coloured dishes where the darker flecks of nutmeg would be undesirable….A small amount will enhance many recipes…adding fragrance without imposing too much taste…Mace works especially well with milk dishes like custards and cream  sauces…It contributes to flavouring light-coloured cakes and pastries…especially donuts…Mace is an exotic spice…It can enhance clear and creamed  soups and casseroles…chicken pies and sauces…Adding some to mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes creates a more interesting  side dish…Some beverages improve with a little mace…especially chocolate drinks and tropical punches…

Phew! That’s too much work for one little spice…But bravo…I love it

Nutmeg…Mace…One on One

Often I hear people confusing nutmeg and mace…Today with this article I’m going to take the initiative and clear all possible confusion for all you doubtful lovers of Mace and Nutmeg…

Mace and nutmeg…call them sisters….brothers… (I’d stick to ‘sisters’ cause they are ‘spicy’ *wink) Anyway…Okay now these two spices are twins…because they are both parts of the fruit of  Myristica frangrans; I am sure you have heard the name? If not… you may also know it as the nutmeg tree.

Now to differentiate between the two separately…I have prepared a few key points…highlighting what you seek…the real difference between nutmeg and mace…

  • Okay…Mace consists of the vein-like threads that cover the dried fruit…while nutmeg is the kernel inside the seed…rather like the kernel inside a peach stone…
  • Mace threads…or blades…are chopped or ground and the nutmeg kernel is ground or grated…
  • Both are traditional flavorings for sweets including- Custards….Cakes…desserts… and other savory dishes…especially fish…spinach…pasta and quiche…Okay I this one was actually the point of congruence rather than a difference between the two..

Now I’m sure you can understand the confusion which does the rounds regarding these two spices…These two similar spices from a single fruit… The confusion is nothing new, it’s a confusion which has been present throughout history….spice lore tells the tale of an English merchant who visited a Ceylon nutmeg plantation and…after learning that mace was worth more than nutmeg…declared…that they should pay more emphasis on the production of mace than nutmeg

Then there are some spice historians who say that mace may not have been considered a spice until long after nutmeg became popular…since it is not included in early European descriptions of spice use from 3rd and 4th centuries…However…cooking with nutmeg in India extends to ancient times…

Another fact from history is that the Arab traders introduced nutmeg to the West sometime in the 6th century…It eventually became as valuable as gold and was among the spices that prompted the European exploration of the world….

This might be quite surprising for you to know but….Nutmeg has been flavoring in beverages…and still is…like Coca Cola…which reportedly includes it in its secret recipe…Astonishing no? A spice (literally) used in a beverage like coca cola…

This…one can attribute to the flavoring qualities of nutmeg and mace…which are spicier than most people expect…Despite their use in mild dishes like custard and stewed fruit…nutmeg and mace actually include some of the same oils that flavor pepper and cloves

Another controversial thing which might attract youngsters to these spices is that nutmeg and mace also contain hallucinogens, and can be fatally toxic if used in a large quantity…you know like…eating an entire nutmeg…However…the small quantities normally used in cooking are considered safe…

Cooks and chefs all over the world…have vacillated through the years over the desirability of mace versus nutmeg…No wonder at times…people seem to have wanted what was harder to come by…and priced mace much higher than nutmeg due to the unavailability of mace….

And ladies and gentlemen…Today…nutmeg’s flavor is considered warm and well matched to food…and appetizing…Mace is described…somewhat contradictorily…as more subtle and spicier…a combination of cinnamon and pepper…Some books describe mace as the stronger flavor and some say nutmeg…The flavor is closely related to freshness…and fresh mace is stronger than nutmeg sold already ground….Still for most purposes…mace and nutmeg are interchangeable….

So in on you to decide the ultimate winner among the two after usage…
