Cardamom Pods, Black

These black pods (which are actually brownish in color) are not "true" cardamom, but come from a closely related species. They have a similar flavor to green cardamom, but stronger and slightly acrid.

Details

Black cardamom is sometimes considered inferior to the delicate green pods, but it has its uses in savory recipes or when a stronger flavor is required. It holds up well to competing flavors in chai mixes, and is delicious in strong coffee. For vegetarian and kosher/halal cooks, one or two black cardamom pods in soups and casseroles can add a subtle bacon flavor.
