A popular spice used in most spice mixtures, curry powders and meat seasonings. Used as a whole pickling spice, in mulled wine and ground as a blend baking. Best used to flavour cooking liquids of fish, game, poultry and meat. Stud an onion and place into the body cavity of roasting duck or chicken. Apple pie and sauce are not the same without cloves, and ground cloves are used extensively in baking cakes, biscuits and puddings.
