Ground cloves: power food with a powerful aroma


Ground cloves is a spice with a very dominant flavour. Cloves are the dried, still closed flower buds of the clove tree. The spice is a short stem with a flower bud on top, which contains the strongest aromas. The plant finds its origin in the Moluccas. Indonesia is still responsible for two thirds of the worldwide cultivation. In Indonesia cloves is an indispensable ingredient in the kitchen. In our country too, the versatility of cloves is increasingly recognised. You can order the spice online from Natural Spices in a package of 400 grams or 1, 5 or 20 kilos.



Ground glove in sweet dishes


Ground glove can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. In the Netherlands we know the spice mainly as an ingredient of spice mixes for biscuits, mainly speculaas. It also tastes great in cakes, custard and pies. In sweet dishes clove ground can be combined perfectly with cinnamon, ginger, mace and nutmeg. Cloves are often confused with the latter. Not surprising, because both have a similar, spicy flavour and can be combined with other herbs and spices that are also predominant in character. Nevertheless, they come from two different plants.


Glove ground in savoury dishes


Although the use of the whole spice is most common in stews with beef and lamb, you can also use cloves ground in savoury dishes. If you then add sage and pepper, this works really well. The spice has an intense flavour, which means you should be careful when using it.


The difference between clove ground and whole clove


The powerful spice can be used both whole and in powder form. Although these two forms obviously have the same flavour, that of the whole spice is a lot stronger. You can add it to dishes, but in contrast to clove ground, do not eat it. The powder form has a much milder taste. The flavour of the whole spice is better retained.



Benefits for your health


Glove ground is not only a strong flavouring in all kinds of dishes, the spice is also very healthy. Already two thousand years ago it was used in Asia for its medicinal properties. The spice has an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect, mainly thanks to the substance eugenol. This is the major component and is also found in nutmeg and basil. In addition, it contains a considerable amount of vitamins B12, C, E and K. All the more reason to buy a stock of this powerful, aromatic superfood online. If you place your order on workdays before 13.00, you will receive it the next day.
