What is Mace?
Mace, also known as Javitri, is cultivated in Indonesia, South India, and Sri Lanka. Mace Powder or ground mace is a brown-colored fine powder with a spicy taste that is subtler and more delicate than nutmeg. The strong aroma of mace powder is a delightful combination of pepper and cinnamon, making it a suitable substitute for pepper in some recipes.
When using mace powder, it is recommended to add it at the beginning of the cooking process to allow its essential oils to develop and infuse properly, enhancing the flavors of the dish.
How to select Mace or Mace Powder?
To select mace or javitri, you can typically find it in the spice section of most grocery stores. It is usually available in glass bottles and in powder form, either whole or cut into smaller pieces. When purchasing mace powder, check for crispiness and look for an intense red and orange color.
If buying in powder form, ensure that it has a rich brown color. Additionally, feel the packet to ensure there are no lumps, as this indicates moisture in the packaging.
