Badia Organic Cardamom -- 1.75 oz
You need this spice in your life!
Cardamom is my absolute, #1 favorite spice, bar none. This cardamom tastes extremely fresh and flavorful, would highly recommend it to anyone. Cardamom is cooling and nourishing to the body, and promotes nourishment of all body tissues. You can crush the whole pod and add it to tea or use the whole or crushed seeds in any type of cooking for an amazing flavor.

Love all the organic spices Vitacost offers :)
My only star deduction is because it's in a plastic jar. My Frontier spices I get from Vitacost so far have all been glass jars- I think this is the only Badia one I've ordered. But it is organic. Bought this to make a special tea blend out of. Take 1 cardamom pod, a sprinkle of anise seeds, and 3 or 4 cloves and blend in spice blender. Put that mixture in a mesh tea ball thing (I don't know what they're called). Then put the ball, 1 green tea bag, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and some shredded coconut in a mug and pour boiling water over and brew. OMG. So yummy. Best tea ever--worth the effort.

GREAT PRICE CARDAMOM !
I use cardamom alot in baking and in curries but find it rather expensive here in N.Z , so was very pleased to find this on VITACOST at a great price.
For real indulgence try a white hot chocolate with dry roasted cardamon seeds and orange flower water. To die for!
I dry roast a few cardamon seeds in a fry pan and have on hand to use in hot chocolate ( take care not too scotch the seeds)
Heat your milk and add 2 cardamon seeds per serving ( leave the seeds in the milk when you pour your hot chocolate, so the aromatic seeds continue to flavour the milk. Add organic white chocolate to your cup and a capful of orange flower water.

Very good. These are whole though!
I didn't pay too much attention when I ordered nor did know how cardamom looked. Apparently it comes in a pod and you have to open it to get the seeds out. No big deal at all. It's like getting out a clove of garlic. When I buy again I will buy it already peeled though.
