Black Cardamom Pods impart a sweet earthiness and smoky undertones to recipes they are added to. Black cardamom has a distinctly more smoky, though not bitter, aroma, than green cardamom, with a coolness some consider similar to mint. This difference between the two varieties mean that black cardamom is not generally considered a suitable substitute for green cardamom, particularly in sweet dishes. Black cardamom pods can be 4 to 6 times the size of the small pods of the green cardamom. Black cardamom is most often used whole, whereas green cardamom is commonly used in both whole and ground varieties.
English Lavender is a member of the mint family. It has a floral sweet and slightly citrus flavour. Dried lavender buds are used to add colour and flavour to many savoury and sweet dishes. It is used in baked goods or as a garnish. Also, it is key ingredient in our Herbs de Provence blend.
White Pepper is black pepper which has been soaked to remove the outer husk. It is hotter and less fragrant than black pepper. It is one of the most versatile spices, particularly used in European cooking so as to not blemish creamy white sauces with black specs of pepper.
Sesame Seeds White are tiny, flat oval seeds from the sesame plant whose pods pop open when it reaches maturity scattering the seeds, hence the term “Open Sesame”. The seeds can have different colours including white and black. Sesame Seeds White are hulled seeds, with a earthy, nutty flavour, soft texture, and aroma of lightly caramelized milk, vanilla, and honey. For this reason, they are better suited for sweeter recipes such as cakes and sesame bars and are the most popular used in cooking. White seeds are sprinkled on breads & biscuits. The ground form makes delightful sweet desserts including halva. They are popular due to its distinctive flavour especially in European, South Middle East and Asian cuisine, while sesame seeds Black are used in East Asian cuisines. It can also be used as garnish. We also stock Sesame Seeds Black.
