Glove whole: small in size, powerful in action

Glove whole is a spice with a very dominant taste. 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 and still Indonesia is responsible for two thirds of the worldwide cultivation. It is an indispensable ingredient in the Indonesian 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 300 grams or 1 kilo.

Use cloves whole in the kitchen

Glove is a spice that you can use for both sweet and savoury dishes. The powder format is slightly easier to use in both types. Clove whole, on the other hand, is usually used for stews, especially those with beef or lamb. Especially in combination with sage and pepper it releases a unique flavour. As a powerhouse in sweet dishes it makes a good team with apples, oranges and pumpkin. It is also easy to combine with other herbs and spices such as ginger, mace, cinnamon and nutmeg. Clove whole is often confused with nutmeg because of the similarities in taste. However, they are two completely different spices.

The difference between whole cloves and ground cloves

The powerful spice can be used both whole and in powder format. Although these two forms obviously have the same flavour, that of ground cloves is a lot stronger. You can add it to dishes, but unlike cloves ground, do not eat it. The powder format has a much milder taste. The flavour of the whole spice is retained a little longer than the ground spice. By the way, you can buy these online at Natural Spices as well.

Why cloves are very healthy

Cloves whole is not only a strong flavouring in your kitchen, it also has health benefits. It was already used in Asia two thousand years ago for its medicinal properties. The spice has an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect, mainly thanks to the substance eugenol. In addition, it contains a large amount of vitamins B12, C, E and K and has a beneficial effect on your digestion. Spanish researchers have even proclaimed clove as power food. 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.
