With a distinctly warm and woody fragrance, whole cloves can add a wonderfully complex flavour dimension to both sweet and savoury dishes. Used sparingly, this strong but sweet spice adds an amazing aroma to festive staples like gammon, mulled wine and bread sauce.
Use generously to taste.
Why not try...
You can also use this to stud into Christmas ham and to decorate festive pomander balls.
Store in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
