What to know about Cloves:

Did you know that you can test the quality of cloves by seeing how they float in some water? If the heads float vertically or the cloves sink in water, they are of good quality while those that float horizontally are not as high in oil content.

Cloves are the unripe flower buds (10 - 17 mm long) of the up to 14 m tall clove tree (Syzygium aromaticum) of the Myrtaceae family.

Cloves are harvested just before they open, then de-stalked before being sun-dried. In the course of the drying process, they change color from carmine to light to dark brown. It is thought that most of any potential health properties of cloves are present in the buds rather than the stems.

Fresh! January 23, 2018
Reviewer: B from Richmond Hill, ON Canada  
I ordered these to use in beef stews.  They are very fragrant, and add a real dimension to the flavours.  Highly recommeneded.

Organic herbs and spices from the Spice Sanctuary January 7, 2017
As a nutritionist, sourcing high quality organic spices that have not been irradiated, thereby preserving their nutritional and medicinal properties is extremely important to me. I have purchased a variety of items from The Spice Sanctuary and can attest to their high quality on all levels, not to mention taste and fragrance. Please buy with confidence.

Beautiful flavour December 20, 2014
Reviewer: Gabriela Koehler from Ft.Smith, NT Canada  
Love this product. Use it for infused water with Cardamom and Ginger. And now during the holidays I spike Oranges with Cloves and put it on Wood stove. The whole house smells inviting.
