Ingredients: cardamom pods (India)
Cardamom’s flavor is complex, slightly sweet, floral, and spicy with citrus undertones which intensifies both savory and sweet flavors and is a key ingredient in many spice blends.
Cardamom can also be used for savory flavoring in pâtés, purées, rice, sauces, soups, stews and with chicken, meats, seafood and vegetables. Enhance sweet dishes by adding cardamom seeds to your homemade custard, ice cream, rice pudding or sprinkle them over a fresh fruit salad.
Whole Cardamom pods, when slightly crushed, are used to flavor casseroles, curries, rice and stew. Add both the crushed pod and the seeds to the cooking pot as the pod will dissolve while providing a bit of extra flavor to the dish.
