    Ingredients

    Cloves.

    Cloves are the most prominent of the flower spices. They come from small, nailed-shaped flower buds of the tropical evergreen clove tree that have been dried. Cloves are native to Indonesia, derived from the French word "clou," meaning "nail" and are harvested in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India.

    Eugenol, the chemical that accounts for the strong taste of the clove, also has a natural numbing effect. When used too liberally, the flavor can run rampant through a dish, so using them sparingly to balance out flavors is best. Surprisingly, pairing this flavor with other eugenol-rich foods (including cinnamon, allspice, red wine, vanilla and basil) and fruits is the key to balancing out its intense essence.

    Classic recipe

    This elegant homemade candy gets its fragrant flavor from our Ground Vietnamese Cinnamon, cardamom, white peppercorns and clove. Complex, but never overbearing, the spices lend a unique flavor and aroma that pairs well with delicate orange peels.
