- Our Green Cardamom Decorticated differs from standard cardamom is that the outer shell has been removed leaving the inner seed and its potency intact. This means that you don’t have to crack the pods. Instead, simply grind as needed (or toast beforehand to better release their flavor). If you cook or bake with cardamom, you know what a hassle it is to remove the seeds from the pods. so we have provided it pods free.
- You also know how incredibly delicious the freshly ground spice is, and how much better it is fresh than the ground. Simply grind the seeds in a spice grinder just prior to use in your favorite sweet or savory recipes. Add a pinch into your next baked good to infuse it with a delightfully spicy sweetness. Add a little into your next pot of coffee or tea. The zesty notes and mild spiciness contribute wonderfully to meat rubs and braises or as a simple way to spice up a pot of quinoa or rice.
- We source Organic Green Cardamom Seeds from Idukki, Kerala. The seeds have been conveniently decorticated from whole pods. Green Cardamom Pod has approximately 10 to 12 tiny dark-brown seeds inside. It has a rich and complex flavor – slightly sweet, exotic, floral, and spicy with citrus undertones and a strong pungent aroma. We offer these inner seeds for those who want to save themselves the trouble of shelling and grinding.
