Cloves are aromatic flower buds widely used for their amazing properties. Known for their strong taste and smell, they are used in various national cuisines. This spice with an intense aroma has a subtly sweet flavor and adds a lot of warmth to the dish. However, the sweetness is balanced by a slight note of bitterness and astringency.
Cloves are best paired with spices that have a sweet taste such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice.
