Cloves, Ground

(Cloves, ground)  The name “clove” is used to refer either to the dried, unopened flower bud of Caryophyllus aromaticus, a tropical evergreen tree of the family Myrtaceae, or to the tree itself. The shape of the dried flower bud resembles a nail, hence the name “clove,” derived from the Latin word for “nail”: clavus.  When fresh, the unopened flower buds are pink. They turn rust-brown when dried. Cloves, 1/2 to 5/8 inch long, resemble small nails with a tapered stem. The large end of the clove is the four-pointed flower bud.  This sweetly pungent, strongly aromatic spice ranks 5 (piquant) on a hotness scale of 1 to 10, and a little goes a long way. Cloves are used in a number of spice mixtures including curry powders, mulling spices, and pickling spices.  Native to Indonesia, the clove tree is cultivated in Brazil, India, Sri Lanka, and the West Indies. This conical tree, with gray bark and shiny dark green, oval, fragrant leaves, grows to a height of up to 45 feet and requires at least 60 inches of rain per year with a dry season for harvesting and curing.  Its small purplish-red flowers grow in triple clusters at the end of branches. The fruit is a purple drupe (like the peach, cherry, almond, etc. containing a nut enclosing the seed) about one inch long.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
