Spice Rack: Cardamom

Discovering unusual spices, one jar at a time.

Description: Cardamom is a member of the ginger family and comes from plants that grow small spindle-shaped, seed-filled pods. There are two main types: green cardamom (slightly sweet, astringent eucalyptus flavor with a minty aroma) and brown cardamom (peppery, sharply astringent, spicy with a medicinal aroma).  

You Might Like to Know: Guatemala is the largest producer and exporter of cardamom, not India (which is second). The spice is also the third most expensive behind saffron and vanilla.  

Close-Talker Protection: Cardamom is considered a highly effective remedy for halitosis. Chewing on the seeds can help eliminate bad breath.
