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.)
“I am gluten-intolerant and very careful about what I purchase to prepare meals with. Many times, seasonings are loaded with wheat or flours as binding agents. I was thrilled to find your seasonings in all of their natural states.”
