Flower plate, or Flowers in cooking

Flowers can serve not only as a room decoration or birthday present. Some of the flowers are often used as an exquisite addition to the dish. Even in ancient countries (Egypt, Rome, Greece), petals were added to food. Now dishes with the addition of flowers are found in the national cuisine of any corner of the earth. Gourmet treats can be tasted in Europe, Asia, Australia. The most popular flowers used as spices are cloves, lavender, etc. But sometimes there are more unusual ingredients.

Capers
Capers, like olives with a ponytail or exotic berries, are unopened buds of a caper. The first dishes with their use were invented by the ancient Greeks and Arabs. But for them it was more likely a cure than a treat: then they could not get rid of the bitterness of these buds. They were eaten as a remedy in the treatment of high blood pressure, heart pain, joint problems. Now people have learned to pickle these buds so that they can be used in cooking.

Clove
Carnation is an unopened flower bud of an exotic clove. It has a bright spicy taste and strong aroma. At the same time, different parts of cloves have different properties: the cap gives a delicate aroma, and the petiole – burning. In cooking, it can be used both in its entirety and in milled form.

The homeland of cloves are the Moluccas
Whole buds are often used for flavoring alcoholic beverages (liquors, tinctures, mulled wine), pickles for canning (mushroom, fruit and berry).

Ground cloves are added to the masala spice mix, which is widespread not only in Asia, but around the world. In combination with pepper, spice is used for cooking meat, fish, mushroom dishes. Together with it you can stew beef, lamb, pork. Sauce with ground cloves emphasizes the taste of chicken, turkey.

In combination with cinnamon, cloves are used to prepare sweet dishes (puddings, compotes, cookies, pies and other confectionery). It can also be added to cereals and jam.

Clove is a very strong spice, so use it with caution. If you go too far with the amount of spice, the natural taste of the products will be interrupted, and any other spices will be lost against its background.

Cloves are tolerant of both cold and hot temperatures. Its taste remains always unchanged, but aroma at an elevated temperature can quickly disappear. Therefore, when cooking, follow the rule: the finer the flavor you want to get, the later add spice to the dish. Be especially careful when adding cloves to dishes before cooking (for example, confectionery).
