Directions

Our gluten-free green cardamom pods have the benefit of being able to preserve the potent flavors and fragrance of the cardamom for extended periods of time, compared to pre-ground versions, which tend to lose their desired properties over time. When using at home, simply remove the inner seed and ground into a powder. One popular usage, is Chai tea, which is made with cinnamon and cardamom, and a popular beverage in India, it also makes a fine addition to coffee, giving it a unique flavor. It is used throughout Southeast Asia in curries and masalas. Further north, in Finland and Sweden, cardamom is used to add flavor to sweet breads. This all-natural cardamom can also be used to freshen the breath by chewing the seeds; it has even been used in chewing gum.

Why is Cardamom Trending? Plus, 7 Products You Must Try.

Do you tend to stick with the same few spices? Are you ready to up your flavor game? If so, it’s time to think beyond the salt, pepper and occasional oregano and embrace cardamom, a bold yet slightly sweet aromatic with hints of mint, lemon and smoke.

Nicknamed the “Queen of Spices” for its ability to enhance both sweet and savory dishes, cardamom comes from the seed pods of numerous plants in the ginger family. The pods (and their seeds) can be used whole or they can be ground into a fine powder. Ten cardamom pods yield approximately 1-1/2 teaspoons of powder.

There are two kinds of cardamom: green cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) and the less popular black cardamom (Amomum costatum). You may also encounter “white cardamom,” which is essentially green cardamom that has been bleached by the sun.

Among the world’s oldest spices, cardamom originated in southern India over 4,000 years ago. It was favored by ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Vikings and made quite an impression on British colonists who set up cardamom plantations in the 19th century. Cardamom has also built up an impressive worldwide fanbase in recent years. The biggest commercial producer of the spice is Guatemala.

Cardamom is especially popular in Indian, Middle Eastern and Swedish cuisine. A simple internet search will yield recipes for everything from cardamom-infused granola, rice, soups and sauces to cardamom smoothies, cookies, ice creams, curries and sweet breads. It is commonly used to flavor beverages, such as coffee and tea, and makes a great addition to hamburgers and meatloaf.

The rich spice is also believed to offer many health benefits. It contains antioxidant, antiemetic and diuretic properties. And did we mention that it’s an excellent breath freshener?
