BOTANICAL NAME: Elettaria cardamomum (L.) Maton
Cardamom has a sweet, warm taste and an exotic floral aroma. Its use spans the culinary spectrum -- from beverages and delicate desserts to meats and curries. Use our Green Cardamom Pods in hot beverages, for a Middle Eastern flair in stews, rice pilaf and other savory entrees, and in Indian dishes like daal. Whole pods can also be chewed after spicy meals to cleanse the breath.
