Description
 
The wonderful characteristics of cardamom green fancy pods is its complexity and versatility as it so readily lends itself to both savory dishes, beverages, confections and desserts.

Cardamom is a member of the Ginger family. Cardamom is valued for its pungent flavor It plays a role in sweet and savory dishes, and is essential to Indian and Scandinavian cuisine. It blends well with basmati rice, not to mention myriads of aromatic curries, masalas and other spice blends, and countless desserts – Oriental sweets are the obvious ones (Baklava, sahleb, sheera, gulab jamun, rice puddings etc), but also in European pastries and baked goods (carrot cake, gingerbread, and many Scandinavian goodies).

Cardamom was chewed by the Ancient Egyptians to whiten their teeth and freshen their breath. Ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine used the spice to "remove fat" and cure urinary and skin complaints. It is a Middle Eastern belief that Cardamom is an aphrodisiac. Traditional Healers believe that it cools the body and aids digestion.
