    A Sign of Love

    This is for both sexes who wish to express interest in anyone at the feast, those who wish to express interest where to do so with the proper medieval sign of offering a cloven fruit.

    The fruit which was offered could be any type of fruit and was to be covered in whole cloves.

    The custom was that the recipient of the cloven fruit was to pluck a clove from the fruit with his or her teeth and chew it up before offering a kiss.

    The origins of this custom are that by eating the clove would freshen the breath before they gave a kiss.
