Nutmeg vs. Mace
"Wayne Boatwright" schrieb im Newsbeitrag
I know the physical difference between the two, that nutmeg is the seed and
mace is the lacy covering surrounding it. I use both in recipes as
specified, and I have subbed one for the other when I had run out.
What I'm interested in is your personal perception of the difference in
flavor. The main difference I perceive is that mace has a somewhat
stronger flavor and is, of course, lighter in color.
Nutmeg is the nut; mace is the blossom.
It's no surprise that they taste vastly different.
