Cardamom Pods, Green

Cardamom has a pungent yet elusive flavor, resinous and dark with hints of eucalyptus. These fresh, fragrant green pods are ideal for steeping in coffee or tea, or flavoring marinades or rice dishes.

Whole pods are used in savory recipes in India and the Middle East, as well as being a traditional flavor for strongly brewed coffee and tea. Cardamom is used in its ground form in both Middle Eastern and Scandinavian baked goods; since cardamom loses flavor quickly once ground, it is often preferable to buy the long-storing whole pods and grind only the amount needed for a recipe.

While cardamom is indigenous to India, today much of it is commercially grown in Central America. Our cardamom comes to us from Tamil Nadu in India, which produces the world’s best cardamom. We feature the freshest pods available, and we’re proud of the fact that many of our most discriminating Indian customers will testify to this.
