Whole cloves are the dried, unopened flower buds of the Syzygium aromaticum tree, also known as the clove tree. They are native to the Moluccas Islands in Indonesia, and have been used for centuries in cooking and traditional medicine. Cloves have a strong, pungent, and slightly sweet flavor, and are often used to add depth and warmth to dishes such as meats, stews, and baked goods. They are also used to make clove oil, which has a variety of medicinal and therapeutic uses. Whole cloves can be ground into a powder or used whole in cooking.
