Mace are the delicate skins of an aromatic nutmeg ball. These spices have a recognizable, intense scent and, together with bay leaf, juniper berries, pepper and a pinch of chili flakes, can be excellently added to a heart-warming pea soup. As mentioned earlier, this rich soup has significantly more spices than is usually common.

It is this unique combination in particular that distinguishes the dish and gives it an exclusive character. The addition of chili flakes also provides the whole with a pleasant, spicy undertone that not only warms the soup, but also gives it a certain spice. This soup is a true taste experience for lovers of traditional dishes with a surprising twist.

It is essential to let the soup rest for a day for the true taste experience. The flavors become more intense as it rests. The longer it rests, the more the aromas merge. That secret also applies to classics like onion soup. Don't forget: patience and practice is the key to good cooking.
