Cloves are the dried unopened flower buds of an evergreen tree that look like little nails. Cloves are very aromatic and need to be used sparingly in dishes. Cloves are not just used to flavour desserts and sweet dishes but also are added to meat dishes.
In Greek cuisine cloves are mainly used in desserts and sweets such as the classic Baklava. But they also find their way into savoury dishes where the cloves are studded into the meat.
In traditional folk medicine cloves have been used to ease toothache, to treat diarrhoea and help other digestive ailments.
