  • Good to know

    Cloves were originally only available on five of the so-called Spice Islands in Indonesia! Their origins were one of the greatest mysteries of the Middle Ages and, of course, they were also more valuable than gold at the time. Cloves are the buds of an evergreen tree in the myrtle family. Our buds are harvested by hand and dried in the sun for several days. They became popular in the colonial period, when Portuguese brought them to Europe. In the 17th century, the Dutch finally controlled trade, which built a monopoly by burning down most of the trees and keeping the price high through control and scarcity. The oldest tree survived this fire and still exists today. The Frenchman Pierre Poivre eventually smuggled some buds to Mauritius, where the climate is similar to that of the Spice Islands, thus ending the spice monopolies and in principle allowing the availability of spices at affordable prices.

  • Fits well

  • National cuisine

  • Usage

    Dose sparingly; preferably use it whole or coarsely mortared. The stems develop a bitter taste when chewing, but the heads are milder and can be eaten.

  • Full taste development

    Add early and braise in fat or alcohol.

  • Tipp

    For simmering dishes, where the brew is skimmed off, it is best to put the cloves in an onion so that they are not taken out early.

  • Health aspects

    One of nature's strongest painkillers!

    Hals-Mund

     

    Throat & mouth

    Once you have bitten on a clove, you know how quickly the corresponding spot is numbed. The clove is one of the strongest spices in the world, thanks to its oil, eugenol and other aromatic substances. In case of toothache, chew some cloves or consume clove oil to bridge the time until the dentist visit.

    In Asia it is used as a mouth freshener after eating.

    Bauchbereich

     

    Abdominal area

    The eugenol in cloves works better than some antibiotics against food poisoning by E. coli or Enterobacter and Helicobacter pylori and all without running the risk of the bacteria developing resistance.

    Bloating, diarrhoea and feelings of fullness, but above all stomach ulcers can also be treated by cloves.

    Blut-Herz

    Blood & Heart

    In case of high blood pressure, you should chew some cloves three times a day and then swallow them to regulate it.
