Description

A very intense spice, with a very exciting history! The original home of the evergreen clove tree was the Moluccas – a group of islands in Indonesia.

These islands were conquered by the Portuguese and Dutch, until finally some seedlings could be smuggled to Mauritius…
Today most carnations come from Zanzibar and Madagascar. You can find cloves in many spice mixtures such as mother earth, Chinese 5 spice, ras el hanout, mulled wine spice, diabolo sugar.
