About Organic Cloves Whole

Cloves are by far the most prominent of the spices known as "flower spices."

Just before the buds blossom, they turn pink, at which point they must be harvested immediately. One tree yields about a seven-pound harvest. The flavour of the clove is rich, sweet and sultry. The high percentage of eugenol will produce a numbing effect if you put a whole clove in your mouth. In fact, before modern anaesthetics, dentists often prescribed that their patients with toothaches pack cloves around the infected area to numb the pain.

In Indonesia, where cloves grow freely, great amounts of cloves are also imported for their use in Kretek cigarettes, which are a blend of tobacco and ground cloves. In France, an ingredient crucial to any stock is a whole onion studded with cloves. In the USA cloves are primarily used to stud ham or pork roast. Ground cloves are used in desserts, cakes, pies, custards, and liqueurs. Cloves can also be used to make lovely, long-lasting scented pomander balls.

Although cloves are now grown around the world, originally cloves were native only to a handful of tiny islands near Indonesia. At the height of the Age of Exploration, European nations fought each other for control of these Spice Islands, the only place in the world to get precious cloves and nutmeg.

Vegan Ethiopian Red Lentils Mesir Wat Recipe

Summary: Misr Wat or Mesir Wat is a vegan Ethiopian stew made from red split lentils and the famous Ethiopian Berbere spice mix. Some Ethiopians, for religious reasons, eat an exclusively vegan diet, and many eat vegan dishes on special 'fast' days. This explains the abundance of vegetarian and vegan specialties. Ethiopian cuisine is one of the most flavoursome cuisines in Africa, and this red lentil stew is no exception. You can of course use a ready-made, shop-bought Berbere since mix, but I promise you that if you make your own, you will be rewarded by a rich and complex tantalising flavour that is well worth the small effort of assembling the all very common ingredients (except perhaps the fenugreek, just leave it out if you have trouble sourcing it) needed to make your own Berbere spice mix. Misr Wat is traditionally served with Injera, a soft sourdough flat bread, but you can also enjoy it with a crispy green salad.
