Nutmeg & Mace in Banda Islands
Nutmegs, which are easily found drying in the sun in Banda Islands, and mace enter into a bewildering number of preparation in flavoring and medicines. In Europe and the United States, the spices find their way primarily into food and condiments, while in Asia they are used mainly in the production of indigenous medical preparation.
