Cloves, Madagascar, Whole
Cloves are the unopened flower buds of the clove tree, which is a tropical evergreen that can live up to 100 years. They have an pungent aroma as well as a sweet and spicy flavor.
During the Chinese Han Dynasty, 206 B.C. to 220 A.D., courtiers were required to hold cloves in their mouths when addressing the emperor.
Whole cloves can be used as garnishes, to stud fruit (make pomander balls), hams or onions, and for decorating gingerbread and other cookies. Although cloves aren’t called for often, they are essential to many ethnic dishes.

Cloves are native to the Molucca Islands (also known as the Spice Islands.)
“Received my order of Urfa and Aleppo chilies recently and had to let you know that these are the freshest chilies I have purchased since being in Istanbul a few years ago. Believe me when I need replenishment I will go only to Savory Spice Shop. Thanks for the quality.”
