Cloves, Ceylon, Whole

Cloves have an almost pungent aroma as well as a sweet and spicy flavor. Cloves are the unopened flower buds of the clove tree, which is a tropical evergreen that can live up to 100 years. They resemble small brads or tacks and their name comes from the French word ‘clov’, which means ‘nail’.

On the Molucca Islands, the natives planted a clove tree for every child born. They believed that the fate of the tree was linked to the fate of that child.

Not only are these cloves larger than our Madagascar cloves, they also have higher oil content. Their near perfect condition makes them ideal for pomander balls. Whole cloves can be used as garnishes, to stud fruit, hams or onions and for decorating gingerbread and other cookies.
