Cloves add a special and unique seasoning as a warm, sweet and strong flavoring that resemble tiny nails.
1 teaspoon is 2 grams and 6 calories.
Interesting ideas for flavorings include ginger bread, pumpkin pie, split pea soup, bean dishes, chili, spice cookies and cakes.
Another idea is to add ground cloves, walnuts and raisins to a stuffing recipe.
Purchase whole cloves if you can since the ground or powdered loses much of its flavor within 6 months or refrigerate.
