Organic Cloves, Ground 3 oz. Cloves (Syzygium aromaticum)
Intense in aroma and flavor, this spice is hot and slightly sweet. Use with caution as the flavor develops sharply within a dish upon standing. The intensity is tempered somewhat with heat.
Cloves are renown for providing their uniquely warm, sweet and aromatic taste to ginger bread and pumpkin pie, but they can also make a wonderful addition to split pea and bean soups, baked beans and chili.
You might add ground cloves to baked goods or a pinch with beef and pork dishes. Use them whole in beverages and pickles. Whole cloves also make an interesting garnish and come in especially handy for decorating gingerbread.
