"Peter Piper picked some packs of pickled peppers in each pack of pickled peppers that peter piper picked was 3 pickled peppers. Now peter piper is happy with all 36 of his pickled peppers. How many packs of pickled peppers did peter piper pick?"

What does this tongue twisting nursery rhyme have to do with a global smuggling operation between two colonial powers of the 18th century? And what does it possibly have to do with a 400 year old tree in one of the thousands of islands that make up Indonesia? This week, in the sixth episode of the series Fabulous Foods, we trace the journey of Clove, from the islands of Indonesia to the student hostels of India, and uncover the web of transnational smuggling and nostalgia that has come to define it today. Tune in, and discover what this sweet and spicy spice teach us about empathy.
