Cloves used in cooking are the dried flowers from Clove trees. Originating on the Molocca Islands, long ago cloves were worth more than gold. It's name comes from the French word ‘clou’ which means ‘nail’ due to the nail-like shape. Clove oil contains eugenol, which is an antiseptic used in mouthwash. It is a very important spice in Chinese Sichuan cooking and gives the mouth a numbing effect when eaten.
Black pepper is picked when the corns are still green then it’s laid and dried out in the sun making them shrivel and turn black. White pepper comes from the same berry but is picked while it's red. It's then soaked to make the outer husk easier to remove. White pepper has a more mild taste to black pepper. Interestingly, black pepper makes the tip of your tongue hot, and white pepper affects the back of your throat!
