Nutmeg - Mace

by Rabbiya

I want to know the ratio between Nutmeg and Mace. What is the ratio I have to use of each thing? Is it 1 pound nutmeg + 1 pound mace, or what else?

Nutmeg and Mace can be used interchangeably
by: Ellen W.

You can use the same amount of Mace in place of Nutmeg, and vice versa. They both have warm nutty flavors; however, Mace is a tad bit sweeter. Mace is more expensive to buy and use because it takes about 25 pounds of nutmegs to get 1 pound of it (the aril, which is the outside lace covering of the nutmeg).
