CARDAMOM, THE QUEEN OF SPICES
Cardamom pods or
Elettaria cardamomum have flavor that tends to bergamot, lemon and camphor while the aroma is rather sweet, fruity and quite pungent.
In India, Cardamom is one of the most important ingredients in traditional cuisine. Therefore, Cardamom is described there as“the queen of spices” ( For your information, pepper is considered the king of spices there).
Cardamom is used in curries, cookies (speculoos) and liqueurs, among other things, and also as a flavoring in tea blends. In dishes with fruit, cardamom gives a fresh, floral flavor. Or add cardamom seeds to smoothies for extra spice.
