Ceylon Mace known as Myristica fragrans is one of the two spices obtained from several species of trees in the genus Myristica. The other one is Nutmeg. Ceylon Mace, originating from Sri Lanka, is a spice made from a reddish orange seed covering the nutmeg seed. It is a more delicate version of Ceylon Nutmeg with a similar flavour to it, although slightly spicier.
Ceylon Mace is used in preserving, pickling and as a flavouring agent for bakery products, fish, meat and vegetables. It is a popular ingredient in sauces, stews, soups and chowders. It is just another popular type of Sri Lankan spices which travel to many countries across the globe.
