SYF&HWS - CLOVES - EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT
I wish one and all a PROSPEROUS & HAPPY NEW YEAR.
After a long break I am back to guest host Anu's SYF & HWS COOK WITH SPICES EVENT. I have selected CLOVES as my spices.
CLOVES can be used to make either sweets or in savories. It is used as a medicine in reducing tooth and gum ache.
The clove comes from the Myrtaceae (myrtle family). It is a distinctive species that has a pleasant smell. The clove on its own has quite a strong aroma. When you taste it, it has a burning flavor. The reason for the strong smell and taste is its contents. Essentially, its oil is the chief content. Up to 15% of the clove content may be oil, and of this quantity, eugenol makes up 70 to 85%, eugenol acetate makes up 15%, and β-caryophyllene makes up another 5 to 12%. This comes to around 99% of the oil, while another 1 or 2% is made up by triterpene oleanolic acid. Source: Recipes Wiki.
