Nutmeg and Mace
The seeds and seed coats are used dried, ground and whole. Nutmeg goes with everything savory: vegetable soups, potato dishes, sauces, eggs, and fish and meat dishes. Mace used similarly to nutmeg, but it also seasons desserts, puddings and Christmas cookies.
Nutmeg is originally from New Guinea, but today it is found mainly in tropical areas such as Mauritius, Brazil and Madagascar.
