Green Cardamom Pods
Cardamom's flavor is complex, slightly sweet, and floral with citrus undertones. Cardamom intensifies both savory and sweet flavors and is a key ingredient in many spice blends. Cardamom is very popular in African, Arab, Asian, Indian and Scandinavian cuisines.
Cardamom adds to the flavor of rice, sauces, soups, stews, breads, pastries and enhances chicken, meats, seafood and vegetables. In some cultures a show of welcoming hospitality, visitors may be offered a cup of coffee flavored with cardamom and cream.
Green Cardamom is especially good with apples, oranges, pears, sweet potatoes, and coffee and tea.
Works well in combination with chili powder, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, paprika, pepper and saffron.
