Cloves are the aromatic dried flower buds picked from the evergreen clove tree Syzygium aromaticum. Cloves though native to Maluku Islands in Indonesia are commercially harvested in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Tanzania. The clove tree is characterized with green leaves and clusters of crimson flowers.

Culinary Purposes

Cloves when ground with ginger, garlic, turmeric and other dry spices are used to marinate chicken, fish and meat. Clove buds are used to flavor Indian curries, pickles, soups and sauces. These have been used for years to provide aroma to hot beverages combining with lemon and sugar. Apple pies and Pumpkin pies are just incomplete without a dash of cloves.
