Taste and Aroma

Cloves are strongly pungent and bittersweet.

Quick Kitchen Tips


  • Store in a tightly sealed glass container in a cool, dark and dry place.Ground cloves will keep for about six months, while whole cloves will stay fresh for about one year stored this way.


  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves = 3 whole cloves

How to use when cooking:

  • Whole cloves are added to boiling beef, fish, poultry or shrimp when cooking stock. When you add whole cloves to the water in which vegetables are being steamed, it gives the vegetables a warm peppery taste. Ground cloves have a milder taste than whole cloves. They are a key ingredient in several spice seasoning blends.
