Javitri is a type of spice derived from the tree Myristica Fragrans. Its seed is also known as nutmeg has huge medicinal properties. This nutmeg tree belongs to the Banda Islands in Indonesia. Mace also has the same concentration of essential oils as nutmeg, which is why they have a more intense flavor.
Due to these characteristics, Javitri is more expensive than nutmeg. The fully ripened fruit of this plant automatically opens and reveals the nutmeg covered with Mace. The crimson red thread-like material surrounding the nutmeg is called a Mace. It is carefully removed and then dried well in the sun for a few days. The flavor of the Javitri resembles the flavor of the pepper and cinnamon blend.
