    Cloves Ground

    Product description

    Cloves are a dark brown, highly pungent and aromatic spice which should be used sparingly in both sweet and savoury dishes such as curries, sauces, stocks, apple dishes. It is especially good with baked ham. It is a spice used in a wide array of different cultures. It brings the palate a cleansing freshness and sweet-spicy flavour. Ground cloves are more likely to be used in recipes where the whole spice would be irritating to take out of the dish

    Chilli Birds Eye Whole

    Product Description

    The bird’s eye chilli is one of Thailand’s hottest varieties of chillies. They are picked at peak maturity then dried in their whole form to lock in full flavour and heat. Characteristic of the Thai sense of humour, the hottest of these chillies is called park kid noon, which literally means “mouse droppings.” This particular variety is known as Bird’s Eye chillies, or Bird peppers, simply because looking at one from the stem-end can appear like the eye of a bird. When they are fully mature, they turn red. They are a variety of Capsicum frutescens and were originally the chilli used in Sriracha sauce.
