Cloves Syzygium aromaticum
Used for cooking and home remedies for centuries, the clove is a pungent warm spice with an intense flavor and aroma. It has a combined flavor of sweetness, bitterness and astringency and can be overwhelming at times. Cloves are generally used for savoury dishes and sauces but added to desserts and drinks for that extra zest. It is also a popular spice used in wines, cider and tea. Eugenol, the main bioactive compound of cloves acts as a pain reliever and can help reduce inflammation.
