Mace blades - or blades of mace as they are also known - can be used whole or ground. In British cooking ground mace flavours haggis, pork pies and potted meats. It is used in Middle Eastern dishes, ground mace can flavour the filling for stuffed vineleaves, whereas whole mace blades would flavour meat stews. In Indian cooking it can be incorporated into garam masala spice mix either ground or whole.The delicate sweet spice flavour of mace combines very well with cinnamon and cardamon.
