    Great recipe for snacks. Perfect for camping. The other day my associate argued with me about my choice of cinnamon for our muffin and here you are with 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon. So she now sees it is routine recipe practice. When I see recipes with cloves, I value them so much because I always remember what our part time culinary instructor said. She was of Asian origin and also a plant medicine enthusiast. She said cloves have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. So their presence in food is of medicinal effect.
