- Elettaria Cardamomum
Elettaria cardamomum is a member of the ginger (Zinziberaceae) family. The name cardamom (sometimes spelled cardamon or cardamum) means "grains of Paradise."
Delicious, aromatic, and therapeutic, cardamom has long been appreciated. Ayurvedic writings from the fourth century B.C. discuss the healing properties of cardamom, and the ancient Greeks and Romans used it in foods and for medicines and perfumes.
Try cardamom in cakes, cookies and pies, stews and loaves, meat and vegetable pies, fruit salads and desserts (like baked apple), mulled wine, grape jelly, pickles, sausage seasoning, soups (especially split pea soup), and with sweet potatoes, carrots and squash.
Commercially, the fruits, seeds and oil are used to flavor beverages, frozen desserts, baked goods, candies, puddings, meats, fish, and condiments. It flavors custards, some Russian liqueurs, Arab and Turkish coffee, and Indian tea.
iHerb made ordering "Ground Cardamom Seed, Decorticated, 16 oz." simple and quick. All it took was a few mouse clicks, a tiny bit of typing, and a few days' wait, and my well-boxed ground cardamom arrived. The cardamom is potent (thanks to both Frontier Natural Products for their expert processing and iHerb for their prompt shipping), and will be quite an asset in my Christmas baking and gift-giving. For those of y'all who like spiced coffee or tea, may I recommend mixing this ground cardamom half and half with ground cinnamon, and adding about a quarter teaspoon per cup to y'all's coffee grounds or very fine tea strainer. Or, for tea, buy some empty tea bags and bulk tea, and fill the tea bags with tea and the spice mix - Coffee house coffee or tea for a fraction of the cost! iHerb also offers a vast array of other spices at great savings for the frugal customer. Shop and be delighted! I did, and will!
