I am rather enjoying this.  The last itme I saw a cloved fruit was at a
wInterkingdom at least 4 years ago, I think it was five.  Someone had
taught a course called "the Pleasures of the Cloved Fruit", and I had
wondered how pomade balls could be that much fun.  Then one of our friends
showed up to feast with this gorgeous creation.  The lemon in question had
ribbons and a bow and maybe even spangly things as well as the required
cloves.  Much classier than the all-clove orange I made for my mother
years ago, I must say.  It really was much to pretty to pass, so we used
it as a centerpiece at feast.
