What is the magic ingredient?
"Clove is the dried flower bud from the tree Eugenia caryophyllus. The name of this tree translated from Latin means "nut leaf" and refers to the nut like flower buds; "clove" is from the Latin clavus, meaning a nail, and refers to the shape of the whole spice. Each tree grows to approximately fifteen meters.
