Mace (Myristica Fragrans)

Medicinal Uses: Digestive aid, Flatulence, Appetizer, Nausea, Diarrhea

 
Mace: (spice)  Lacy, scarlet-colored aril (orange when dried) which surrounds the seed of the nutmeg fruit. Flavor is a combination of cinnamon and pepper, similar to nutmeg but much more subtle. Ground mace is often chosen for light-colored products, such as pound cake.
 
Mace is a lighter color and can be used in light-colored dishes where the darker flecks of nutmeg would be undesirable. A small amount will enhance many recipes, adding fragrance without imposing too much flavor. Mace works especially well with milk dishes like custards and cream sauces. It contributes to flavoring light-colored cakes and pastries, especially donuts. 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.

  1. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
