India / Ellettria cardamomum
Cardamom presents a pungent mixture of camphor, citrus and floral notes that combine to create a heady flavor experience. The volatile flavors diminish quickly once cardamom seeds are ground so purchase and/or grind only as needed. Use freshly ground cardamom seed for Turkish coffee, tea cakes, or sweetmeats.
