Cardamom Pods Green Whole - Certified Organic
Cardamom: the signature spice of the famous chai tea, cardamom is sweet yet deeply pungent with camphoric tones. Use to flavour rice, meat stews, desserts and black tea. Cardamom refers to several plants of the similar genera elettaria and amomum in the ginger family zingiberaceae. It is the world's third most expensive spice by weight, outstripped in market value only by saffron and vanilla. Green cardamom is broadly used in south east asia to treat infections in teeth and gums, to prevent and treat throat troubles, congestion of the lungs and pulmonary tuberculosis, inflammation of eyelids, and digestive disorders. It is also used to break up kidney and gall stones, and was reportedly used as an antidote for both snake and scorpion venoms. Amomum is used as a spice and as an ingredient in traditional medicine in systems of the traditional chinese medicine, ayurveda in india, pakistan, japan, korea and vietnam. This is a lovely aromatic spice with a vibrant colour that we are sure you will love.
