Mace and nutmeg are from the same tree, a large evergreen native to the Maluku Islands and the East Indian Archipelago. Nutmeg's warm flavor is bolder than mace's. Like mace, nutmeg is used sparingly and is most often used as a dessert spice, especially for cakes, cookies, and pies. It also pairs well with cream sauces and cheese dishes.
