The evergreen tree, Syzygium aromaticum, is the source of whole, nail-shaped cloves. Hence the name “cloves” after the Latin word “clavus” which means nail. Cloves date back thousands of years and have been used for everything from food, medicine, to even political and religious reasons. Today, cloves are still considered very important and it is one of the world’s most popular and widely used plants due to its variety of uses. These cloves are dried-up flower buds that are reddish-brown in color. They can be used in whole, ground-up form, or even for the essential oil that comes from the clove itself.
- Uses: While the oil form is mainly used for medicinal and aromatic purposes, the ground-up powder form that is provided by Prairie Herb Farms is typically used for cooking and baking. The powder can also be used to flavor warm drinks such as teas and ciders.
- Benefits: Cloves contain essential nutrients such as fiber, vitamins, minerals and are high in antioxidants. Cloves also have antimicrobial properties and can be used as a local anesthetic to kill off bacteria.
