Black Cardamom Pods

Of all the world's spices, black cardamom is perhaps the most difficult to describe. Flowery yet earthy, powerful yet delicate, this podded seed is truly unique. Pungent black cardamom has been smoke-dried, making it better suited to braised meats and savory recipes than the green pods.

Details

The delicious smoked flavor of black cardamom is popular among vegetarian, Kosher, and Halal cooks as it can be reminiscent of bacon’s own smokey flavor. Black cardamom is most often used in Indian recipes but it lends itself well to other cuisines. Try adding a crushed pod to a pot of Vietnames pho stock or Chinese braised beef recipes. You can also remove the seeds from the hull, grind them into a powder, and add it to your favorite curry or masala recipes. We recommend lightly toasting the cardamom pod in a dry pan before use to amplify its flavor and aroma. Ingredients: Black cardamom.

High quality

Great price on a hard to find spice! Started seeking it out for a biriyani recipe I wanted to make. A coworker also told me she uses green and black cardamom in her chai-so I started doing that too. It adds a smoky note that is quite delicious.

Hard to Find but a click away

I searched my grocery stores, specialty and basic, and either came up empty or they asking price was steep. I ended up looking online for spice shops to see if I could get it cheaper and came across this site. I ended up ordering a few spices and fell in love the second my package arrived. Everything has a beautiful packaging and the flat pack I got is resealable for storage. I have never used cardamom before, but I love it in the chili oil I made yesterday. I highly recommend!

Hard to find

But so glad I was able to get it from my favorite spice retailer! I saw an episode of Good Eats Reloaded where AB uses black cardamom in a chocolate syrup. I had to try it! It adds such a unique quality to the syrup. Must try! It has an almost piney, Smokey, mentholy taste to it. So unique and must certainly looking for other uses for this stuff!

This is one that isn’t on the supermarket shelf but glad to have a great source for them here.
