Aside from being a healthy spice, cardamom enhances both sweet and savoury flavours. Chew cardamom as a breath freshener or enjoy in a tea. Add a cardamom pod or two and some turmeric to some boiling rice for a flavourful and colourful dish. Or serve it with a chicken curry or cream of squash soup on a cold winter day to warm your soul.
Cardamom (cardamon) is a fruit from a large perennial bush belonging to the ginger family. Cardamom grows wild in rainforests in southern India and Sri Lanka. Now cardamom is cultivated in other parts of the world (Tanzania, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea and Guatemala). Small seed pods are triangular in cross-section, taking the form of a spindle and contain black seeds within.

Fantastic spice and for an organic product, the price is fairly reasonable. I usually try to buy it when it goes on sale at well.ca. Not only do I love adding cardamom to so many of my foods and drinks, but crushing the seeds with my mortar and pestle is an experience in aromatherapy that I look forward to.
