Cloves, Whole

There is something gorgeous about the smell of fresh clove buds. And darn it, these cloves are crazy fresh.

Like all of our spices, we get ours direct from the source. In this case, we're talking a city called Virajpet in south India. While that city sounds a lot like a budget European jet airline for domesticated pets, it's actually a city in Karnataka, India well known for its spices.

Cloves are the aromatic flower buds of the evergreen tree. They go well with meats, curries and marinades. They work well in hot beverages like tea. And they pair well with cinnamon, allspice, vanilla, red wine and basil, as well as onion, citrus peel, star anise and peppercorns.

We give you access to the exact same clove buds that we regularly supply to Michelin star chefs across the country.

Yes, this bud's for you.

I use these exclusively for pickled red onions. The flavor and aroma far exceeds any cloves that I have previously purchased. Stop purchasing stale, outdated supermarket spices and experience what nature intended. Don't hesitate!

Clove love

So fragrant and fresh - stick one in an onion when making stock or beans :))

I have used cloves and cardamon from the tins sent. They are kept so fresh in this container. I enjoyed the quality products in my chai tea. I was having trouble finding them locally. So glad I found your resource.

Reluctant online spice shopping turns out to be a win!

Usually I have a local go to spice shop. But due to the Corona everything is different. So I ordered some spices and Chai from you. My first impression was how much I liked the packaging. Then I tried the Chai and it is yummy. I have used the cloves and black mustard all wonderful. I would certainly recommend ordering from the Reluctant Trading Experiment!!
