Liven up Christmas ham with cloves

Liven up Christmas ham with cloves

No spice says Christmas like cloves, so they could be a perfect addition to a meal during the festive season.

Felicity Cloake has been speaking of her recommendations for preparing a Christmas ham in the Guardian and suggested making use of both cloves and mace.

This, she said, could be an "appropriately festive" addition to regular adornments such as black peppercorns and a bay leaf.

"Christmas is perhaps the only remaining occasion when we can indulge an atavistic lust for huge hunks of flesh without an accompanying saucing of guilt," Ms Cloake observed.

It's not just the taste of cloves that bring festive thoughts to mind – the smell can really set the scene too.

So if you are having friends or relatives round at your place during the Christmas break, try to stimulate their senses with the spice to get them firmly in the mood for the season of goodwill to all men.
