Cloves are the aromatic dried flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae. Cloves are native to Indonesia and used as a spice in cuisines all over the world


Origin: Madagascar


Flavor/Aroma:Close to cinnamon and nutmeg but stronger


Use: Whole cloves are often used to “stud” hams and pork, pushing the tapered end into the meat like a nail. A studded onion is frequently used to impart an elusive character to courts-bouillons, stocks and soups. Cloves are often used to enhance the flavor of game. They are used in a number of spice mixtures. Very popular in North Africa and the Middle East cuisine where they are generally used for meat dishes, though rice is often aromatized with a few cloves
