After hearing his story she asked him to read the recipe back to her. When he got to "56 cloves" she stopped him.

"56 cloves! That was supposed to be 5-6 cloves." she said, while laughing so hard she could barely speak.

Reminds me of a old college friend in Alaska back in 1972. He was making chili from a recipe in a Good Housekeeping or maybe it was a Betty Crocker Cookbook. At the end of the recipe it said” For spicier chili, add 1 clove.” Well Eddie had never seen a whole clove before but he had a jar of ground cloves in his spice rack. He also had fresh garlic cloves so he figured that a whole clove would be about the same volume as a garlic clove so he added a teaspoon of ground cloves to his pot of chili.

C.J.V. - reel spicy chili, that
