Cloves have been used for thousands of years. One of the earliest references reveals that the ancient Chinese, in order to approach the emperor, had to have a few cloves in their mouths to sweeten the breath.
Clove is the strongest of all the aromatic spices. As a result, it is used at fairly low levels, but in an extremely wide range of products. In the United States, cloves are the most visible in baked ham and certain sweet pickles. However, they have an important supporting function in countless spice and seasoning combinations for sweet baked goods, sausages, luncheon meats and spreads, soups, salad dressings, relishes and casserole dishes from baked beans to pot roast.
Indonesia is still a major producer, but it is also the largest customer for cloves, because of the national penchant for clove flavored cigarettes. Called kreteks (because they crackle when lighted), these cigarettes are two parts tobacco and one part cloves. Production now amounts to about 36 billion cigarettes a year, requiring approximately half of the world clove production and dictating today's prices for cloves.
When storing herbs and spices packaging is an important consideration. Plastic zip seal bags allow aroma and taste to escape and shorten the flavor life of your herbs and spices.
We package our herbs and spices in food grade PET plastic jars. These clear, dense jars allow you to see your herbs and spices while still sealing in all the aroma and flavor so you get maximum life from your ingredients.
