Organic Jumbo Green Cardamom Pods
These whole green cardamom pods allow you to access some of the richest cardamom flavors available in your home kitchen. Since keeping them in pod form until you're ready to use them helps naturally preserve the full flavor of this spice, just a few cardamom seeds will provide a strong taste and aroma to your dish. When stored properly, these jumbo green cardamom pods should last for months or even years without needing to be replaced.
Cardamom is a suitable addition to savory or sweet dishes and drinks. Cardamom has a unique tangy flavor that has similar notes to lemon or orange. It also provides some herbal spiciness that can enhance the flavor of a wide variety of dishes. It is an aromatic spice that has a distinct and well-known flavor, making it a must-have for any home cook interested in preparing cuisine from India, the Middle East, Scandinavia, and more.
Some recipes call for whole pods, but more often than not, you will need to grind them with the use of a mortar and pestle to make green cardamom powder before adding them to food. This extra step is worthwhile for the much more intense flavor that comes from fresh ground pods as opposed to pre-ground options.
Follow these steps to use green cardamom pods in your recipes:
- Open pods and remove the inner seed.
- Grind with a spice grinder or mortar and pestle.
- Gradually add the ground spice to your dish.
