Cloves can be used grounded or as a whole, poked in meat or in fruit jams, like we do with our Sweet Pear Jam. They are dried flower buds shaped like small nails.

It is that particular shape that prompted the initial French name of Clou (nail) from which derives the term Cloves.

Cloves poked in Poached PearsOf sweet and penetrating flavor, Cloves are widely used in many cuisines for baked food. In the Lebanese Cuisine it is used in combination of various spices that form our famous 7-Spice which we use in a large number of our dishes. That is specially the case when meat is present, and also chicken and fish, and even some vegetarian recipes.

Alone or combined with other spices, Cloves provide numerous health benefits worth mentioning.
