Essential Pantry Whole Green Cardamom Pods

1.5 oz

A whole green cardamom pod (Elettaria cardamomum) is an indication of very high quality, as it is difficult to buy cardamom pods in such a pristine state. Whole green cardamom pods are as esteemed as the seeds they contain: many pilafs, curries, and other hot dishes call for whole cardamom pods to be added. It slowly infuses the dish with its essence, and the shell disintegrates as it cooks.

It is also a necessary participant in the ritual of Arabic coffee. It is added to the thick, sweet drink as it steeps, and the gesture of serving whole green unblemished cardamom in coffee is an expression of very high esteem for the guest. The guest returns the gesture by drinking several cups of the brew.

6 pods for per teaspoon. Spice or Coffee bean grinder works great.
