Sri Lankan Organic Ground Cloves. Considered one of the world's most important spices, cloves are the dried unopened flower bud of the tropical evergreen tree. Used in both sweet and savory cooking either whole or ground. Cloves ground have a flavor that is strong, pungent, and sweet, almost hot. Their flavor is one of the most penetrating of all spices and their bitter, astringent flavor leaves a numbing sensation in the mouth. Ground Cloves are used in cakes, gingerbread, cookies, fruit salad, chili sauce, beef stew, pot roasts, sweet potatoes, and green vegetables. In the West, cloves are mainly considered a baking spice, though their preserving qualities make them popular for pickling and barbecuing
