    Hi there sorry I do not know what mace is and the dictionary is not helping. What is it made of?

  2. Val says:

    Mace is a culinary spice obtained from the dry covering of the nutmeg fruit seed. It is similar in flavour to nutmeg but not quite as sweet. Available from all good food shops/supermarkets.

  3. Kerry says:

    This sounds interesting and delish, but am wondering what to serve it with?

  4. gypsy says:

    I think it would be nice with a traditional roast pork dinner.

  5. Jules says:
