The sweet, piney notes of freshly ground cardamom are a key flavor in Scandinavian breads and Indian and Middle Eastern desserts. For those who prefer not to include whole cardamom pods in savory dishes, ground cardamom makes an acceptable substitute. When making sweet dishes, this spice pairs well with any tropical or stone fruit making it your new secret ingredient in banana bread, blueberry pie, or peach cobbler. We grind our cardamom weekly for the freshest, strongest flavor. Since cardamom loses flavor quickly once ground, it's best to purchase this spice in smaller quantities.
