Personally, I dob't like cloves much and would be just as happy to have them left out. I do use them occasionally, and I usually buy mine at the Indian store - whole. They are MUCH cheaper, and easily crushed to a powder in a coffee grinder or a mortar & pestle. Whole spices stay fresh a long time, and ground ones get stale faster.

Just for grins I checked the cost of my cloves from the Indian store: $3.26 for 1/3 of a pound, which is easily 8 or 9 times the size of the teeny-tiny jar of ground cloves at the grocery (or 2-3 times the larger normal size spice containers).
