This preserve is a very old recipe and, like all sauces, it will only improve with age. Give it at least two months before you crack open the jar. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.
Note This recipe makes about 750ml. Mace blades, the outer casings of nutmeg, are available from Herbie's Spices and select delicatessens.
