Whole Cloves, Sri Lanka
Crisp clove buds - forest garden harvest
Clove is a peculiar flower that grows on tall trees of up to 10 meters. Our cloves come from a village cooperative called Pilimathalawa in Sri Lanka, where the harvest takes place over several days as the buds need to be picked at the right time. Fresh and good quality cloves can be distinguished by their porous light brown buttons that join the dark stalk.
Cloves are an essential ingredient in the delicious Chinese ‘five spice’ and in many other curry mixtures. In Danish cuisine, cloves are a must in pork roast with red cabbage pickles, chutneys and other fruit preservations. It can also be used in spice cakes and honey cakes. Cloves can easily be ground with a mortar and pestle or in a coffee grinder.
