MARNYS® Clove Essential Oil is a food-grade oil, provides a very intense scent which enhances the flavouring power in salty and sweet food. It's got a spicy, strong and bitter taste that leaves a cold sensation in the mouth when raw. This sensation is softer when the oil undergoes culinary processes.
Clove is used as a culinary spice, especially in the cuisine of Asian, African and Middle Eastern countries, flavouring all kinds of recipes from meats, curries and marinades, to desserts with fruits like apples, pears or rhubarb. Clove can also be used to give an aromatic and flavouring touch to hot drinks, often combined with other ingredients such as lemon and sugar. Clove is a common element in spice blends, including pumpkin pie spice, and for shortcrust biscuits or 'speculaas', which are very typical in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

What does the Clove Tree look like?
The evergreen clove tree is native to the Moluccas and is widely grown in Tanzania, Madagascar, Brazil and other tropical regions. The shape of this tree is pyramidal, 20m high, and belongs to the Myrtaceae family. Clove is obtained from the flower buds of Eugenia caryophyllata (a synonym of the term Syzygium aromaticum) which are hand-picked before blooming. The buds are about 1-1.5cm long, brown, with a very characteristic shape. The lower part consists of the calyx tube that encloses the immature flower in its upper half. When collected, they must be separated from their stalk and then dried in the sunlight. The taste and scent are very particular.
