Albert Menes Cloves, whole, Organic 25g
Discovered in the Maluku Islands, also known as the Spice Islands, the clove is the flower bud of the clove tree, picked before the corolla blooms. Introduced to Europe in the fourth century by the Arabs, cloves became a luxury product that was taxed in the Middle Ages. It has always been used in spice blends in China and India.
These Organic Whole Cloves by La Caravane des Épices come from clove-growing regions in Madagascar. The buds are picked, sun-dried and then sorted by hand to guarantee the best quality. Produced by organic farmers' cooperatives, these cloves La Caravane des Épices are recognisable for their pronounced flavour and aesthetic appearance. Only whole heads are selected, leading to the strong flavour and specific taste of this spice.
Spiked into an onion, cloves deliciously flavour sauerkraut, stocks and stews. Their slightly sweet flavour goes wonderfully with fruit salads and compotes and flavours cakes, pain d’épices, fruit juices as well as mulled wine.
