    I have a chili rec that calls for ground cloves. The jar of ground cloves was 7.00 for a small jar at the supermarket. I have whole cloves on hand.

    How do I grind whole cloves so I can use what I have?

    For all spices I find the best price at World Market. Most of their fresh spices are dated and >99 for a bag. You can afford to update them since they lose their freshness quickly when ground.

    Have a seperate coffee grinder for spiced or use mortor and pestal to grind spices. Cloves would be too hard to try to breakdown with a rolling pin, but you could put them in a plastic bag and crush them with a hammer. They wouldn’t be as fine a one of the other two methods.

    I usually just use my coffee grinder.
