How Do I Convert Whole Cloves to Ground Cloves?

Answer

Ground cloves are often used in baking. You can convert whole cloves into ground cloves with a spice grinder or a coffee grinder. The grinder you choose should not contain plastic parts because the clove oil can damage them. Tip: Do not use the same coffee grinder for both cloves and coffee beans to avoid tainting the flavor of your coffee.
