Whole Cloves
(syzygium aromaticum)
Cloves, Whole

Cloves come from the dried, unopened flower buds of a small evergreen tree native to the fabled Spice Islands.

They have a strong, sweet, fruity taste that’s also sharply hot and pungent. And can leave your mouth feeling a little bit numb.

The warm, lingering flavor of cloves works well with both sweet and savory dishes. But be sure to use them sparingly as their potent flavor and aroma can easily overpower other spices.

Spice Islands® cloves are intensely aromatic with a dark brown color and high volatile oil content.

Fun Fact: In the 1600s, the Dutch gained control of clove production in the Spice Islands by destroying all of the clove trees except those on a single island. Anyone found smuggling out trees was sentenced to death.

Our Whole Cloves are only cloves. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
