Essential Pantry Organic Whole Cloves

1 oz

These unopened buds from a tropical evergreen tree belonging to the myrtle family are used to flavor a multitude of dishes both sweet and savory.

Cloves have historically been one of the world's most important spices, in demand in any number of world cuisines. 

It is a main player in Indian and Asian spice mixtures, and appears in Mediterranean dishes as a primary seasoning for meat and poultry.

Its European applications include mulled wines, gingerbread and other sweet baked goods.

It is also commonly used with fish, tongue and pickled foods. The assertive, dark aroma and sharp, peppery taste mellows well with sweet flavors, especially when cooked; try it with apples, sweet potatoes, cranberries and beets.
