Cloves are a spice with a distinct and memorable aroma, with flavors similar to that of a more peppery cinnamon or allspice. It is used often in recipes with autumn spices.
Cloves can be used whole or ground. Ground cloves are popular in baked goods and simmering foods like soups, stews, curries, and marinades. Cloves can be found in recipes from around the world, especially Indian, Asian, African, Middle Eastern and European cuisines.
Ground cloves are a strong and pungent spice that should be used delicately, increasing the amount in a dish gradually until the right flavor is achieved. Otherwise the intense spiced aromas may quickly overwhelm all other flavors.
Use ground cloves alongside baking spices in many baked goods like gingersnaps, speculoos cookies, shortbread, pumpkin spice bread, ginger spice bread, pumpkin pie, apple pie, and vanilla spice scones. Ground cloves can also be sprinkled lightly into hot winter drinks like chai tea, mulled wine, spiced apple cider, and Turkish coffee.
In recipes, approximately 1 teaspoon of whole cloves is equal to 3/4 teaspoons of ground cloves. Stored properly, ground cloves can be kept in a cool dark pantry for several months.
