Cloves are harvested and dried in the sun, they have an intense aroma, thanks to the high percentage of essential oils. It takes around seven years for the clove to flower and produce its famous spice. The aroma of cloves is the most intense of all, with strong notes of mint complemented by a winning sweetness. The slightly alcoholic sensation is due to the substantial presence of essential oil.

Chef's Advice

A glass of hot water with a teaspoonful of powdered ginger, honey and a few cloves will help you to get over a cold. Together with cinnamon, it is the crucial ingredient in a good vin brûlé and in strudel, but it can also accompany seasoned cheeses very successfully. An onion with a few cloves inserted into it makes for an excellent marinade for game. It also works well with vegetables in sweet-and-sour sauce.
