Clove - the natural antiseptic
Cloves are the dried flower buds of a tropical
evergreen tree belonging to the 'Myrtaceae'
family. Found in two varieties - 'Eugenia
Caryophyllata' and 'Syzygium Aromaticum'
- they are native to the eastern Indonesian
islands known as the Moluccas. Today, in
Madagascar, Brazil and Vietnam, it is primarily
grown as a cash crop. In India, cloves come
from Mercara in Karnataka, and Kerala. Known
and used for well over 2000 years, cloves
have a natural antiseptic effect and are
used widely in medicines and as a prominent
ingredient in Indian and Asian cooking.
Clove- on of the 'big four' - Clove is
one of what the spice world calls 'big four'
along with Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Pepper -
and shares with them the adventurous history
that revolves around all the spices from
the Orient. Clove is an essential ingredient
in world cuisine and of course, an interesting
part of Indonesian 'Kretek' cigarettes,
which gives off a distinctive aroma and
flavour when smoked.
