Cooking with Clove Extract
What is Clove Extract?
Clove Extract is just one of many pure extracts you can use to enhance your recipes. Extracts are concentrated flavoring agents that have been distilled from beans, nut oils, fruits, and spices that have been dissolved in an alcohol base. Our pure extracts can be used to add flavor to candy, beverages, specialty dishes, baked goods, and desserts.
In order to get the best flavor possible from extracts, it's important to remember the following storage tips:
- Close the bottle tightly after each use.
- Store your extracts in a cool, dark place.
These simple steps will help prevent evaporation so that you can ensure that your extracts provide sensational flavor each and every time you use them.
What Does Clove Extract Taste Like? How can I use it?
Clove extract is most often used in beverages and holiday sweets. It has a very distinct flavor that is an important part of mulled cider and wassail. Clove extract's unique flavor is distilled from the unopened bud of the clove tree, a tropical evergreen. Try our pure clove extract in your recipes that call for cumin, cinnamon, pumpkin or apple. You can also try one or two drops in your tea to help ease nausea or give a soothing effect.
Italian sausages, Vietnamese Pho, Middle-Eastern Biryani and many types of Indian cuisine just don't taste the same without clove. Clove extract can be used in places where presentation is key and dried cloves just won't do the trick.
