Cloves come from a small evergreen tree with smooth grey bark and large, bright green, aromatic and lance-head shaped leaves. Its flower buds are dried to produce this popular spice. The tree is native to India and Indonesia but is also found in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Zanzibar and Madagascar. Cloves have a strong aroma and a spicy pungent flavour. Clove Powder is widely used in Asian, African and Middle Eastern cuisines. It can also be used in desserts that utilize cinnamon, nutmeg and other spice, or in sweet dishes with apples and pears.
