I’ve not been a clove fan so much, but just 2 days ago used cloves in a pork barbeque recipe. It added a nice flavor. Pulled pork barbeque sandwiches were awesome!

This spice is one of the ingredients that intertwines East and West Indies culinary culture and history.

Its history and popularity even predates the Roman Empire.

Henry VIII was known to adore it’s qualities for improving the taste of pork and other foods.

What more can I say, this humble little clove will always occupy my spice rack.
