Culinary Notes:

Ground Cardamom pods have a strong, unique taste, with an intensely aromatic, resinous fragrance. Cardamom was originally native to India and can be found in some of its neighbouring countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Nepal and Guatemala. They are triangular in cross-section and spindle-shaped, with a thin green outer shell and small black seeds inside. Cardamom is highly valued and one of the more expensive spices by weight, but little is needed to impart flavour. It is used in both savoury and sweet dishes as well as a traditional flavouring for coffee and tea. Cardamom also has many medicinal purposes and helps the body eliminate waste through the kidneys. Green Cardamom pods are ground to then be mixed seamlessly into Sauces and curries etc imparting strong flavour without the texture of the whole pod.

Health Benefits:

Cardamon has many health benefits. It stimulates the digestive system, reduces gas and counteracts excess acidity in the stomach. It also stimulates appetite and cures halitosis (bad breath).
