Clove, also known as “Syzygium aromaticum,” is found as a flower bud in the tree family Myrtaceae. Cloves are often harvested in warm countries such as Madagascar, Brazil, Zanzibar and Sri Lanka. The beautifully sweet aroma of cloves comes from the volatile oils that are concentrated in the head of the clove. Like cinnamon, grinding cloves can be dangerous if not cooled and controlled properly during the milling process.
