Cloves are the dried buds of a large flowering tree, which is widely grown in Zanzibar. The 1001 Organic cloves are grown by three cooperatives of smallholder farmers on Pemba island, many of whose families have been growing cloves and other spices (including our cinnamon, black pepper and nutmeg) for generations.  These cloves are hand-picked at the last possible moment before flowering, ensuring the largest size and most mature flavour, and then dried in the tropical sun. 

 The 1001 Organic cloves are bright, sweet and very spicy, with rich loamy warmth and a numbing menthol buzz. Their island terroir lends a touch of salt and fragrant notes of eucalyptus and tropical flowers. In the kitchen cloves are essential for curries, compotes, punch, hot spiced wine, Christmas teas and ginger bread cakes. Its aroma suits perfectly game meat, lamb or fish gravies as well as rice or kale dishes. 

Cloves have an anti-inflammatory effect, quicken the appetite, are supportive for digestion and stomach-aches and are locally as a natural substitute for anesthesia.
