Mace

How much powdered mace would equal one single strand of mace? Never cooked with it before -- recipe calls for a single strand and could only get powdered at the market. Thanks in advance.

I would estimate about 1/8 teaspoon. The threads of mace that cover a nutmeg aren't all that substantial. Too, mace is very bitter, so a little bit goes a long way.

Thanks! Here's the recipe: http://www.vegrecipesofindia...

I really don't know this blog, but I got have a cauliflower and some potatoes from the CSA to contend with, and a yen for an Indian preparation. Based on the ingredient list it looked to me like it should be good.

P.S. I didn't actually know that mace was the thread that covers nutmeg!

Ok, well, a nutmeg nut is covered by threads of red mace. Your Indian-inspired cauliflower and potatoes with mace (and who knows what else) sounds lovely, and I hope you'll post the recipe here on at Food52.

as you''ve already bought it, keep using the powdered mace. But fir those who don't have it, or don't love it, nutmeg makes a fine substitute.
