Cardamom Pods, White

When cardamom, a native of India, was first introduced to Scandinavia, it had to survive a lengthy sea voyage. Prolonged exposure to sun, salt and air bleached the pods white and slightly altered the flavor of the seeds. To this day, our Scandinavian customers seek out these rare, white cardamom pods. Our shop in Geneva, Il, which has a Scandinavian ethnic background, sells more whole cardamon pods in a week than our other shops do in a month!

Traditional Scandinavian recipes will still call for the bleached white cardamom pods in pastries, breads and glögg, although you can certainly substitute green pods for a stronger, fresher flavor.
