Production & Sourcing
Ground cloves are made by processing dried clove flower buds into a fine powder. First, the flower buds of the clove tree are carefully harvested in tropical regions. These buds are then dried in the sun, which removes their moisture and concentrates their flavor. Once fully dried, the buds are ground into a fine powder using specialized equipment. This grinding process breaks down the buds into tiny particles, resulting in ground cloves. The ground cloves have a deep reddish-brown color and a strong, spicy aroma.
