Spice Islands Ground Cloves
Cloves are the dried, unopened flower buds of an evergreen tree native to the fabled Spice Islands. Today, we travel to Madagascar, Zanzibar, Sri Lanka and other exotic lands for our Ground Cloves. The intense bouquet and rich color lend a remarkable flavor to a variety of foods. A pinch of Ground Cloves adds spicy depth to gingerbread, cookies, applesauce, fruit muffins and spice cakes. It's also a secret ingredient in barbecue and cocktail sauces. Blend Ground Cloves with maple syrup and drizzle over cooked sweet potatoes and winter squash.
