Cloves are commonly used in spice blends for meat rubs and marinades, including the popular blends Chinese five-spice powder and garam masala. They are one of many spices used to make Vietnamese pho, and they stud whole-baked hams and pots of German braised red cabbage. Cloves are a pungent spice found in savoury dishes, desserts, and drinks. Ground or whole cloves flavour meat, sauces, and rice dishes. Cloves are often used along with cinnamon and nutmeg in sweet dishes, especially "pumpkin pie" flavoured items for the autumn and winter holidays, and in drinks such as mulled wine, cider, or chai.
