Cardamom pods, the 'queen of spices' in your kitchen

Cardamom pods are like a little treasure in your kitchen. The cardamom pods are among the oldest and most expensive spices in the world that closely follow vanilla and saffron. Cardamom is internationally known as 'Queen of the spices'. Cardamom whole pods are grown in a limited number of places in the world. The ones you can order online from us are from Guatemala. You can buy the whole cardamom pods online in a package of 340 grams or 5 kilos.

The origin of cardamom pods whole

Cardamom pods owe their name to the area where they originally come from: the Ghat Mountains in southwest India. The area is also known as 'Cardamom Hills'. The plant on which the pods grow resembles a reed-like herb and is related to ginger. Cardamom pods whole are in fact the dried seed pods of this particular plant. The production of the plant is relatively expensive. The pods are picked by hand just before the fruit is ripe. Moreover, the fruit is only produced two years after the plant has been planted.

The 'real' green cardamom

Cardamom exists in two varieties: green and black. The green pods are smaller and have a more intense aroma. The taste is a mix of sweet, warm, bitter and yet mild at the same time. Because of their pronounced character, green cardamom pods are called the 'real' cardamom. Of course you can order cardamom pots of this highest quality online at Natural Spices.

How to use cardamom pods whole

You could use cardamom pods whole in both sweet and savoury dishes. The subtly sweet taste plays an beautiful role in desserts and various pasta products. But you can also use the pods in spicy recipes such as curries, stews and meat dishes. Because the pods have a strong taste, you have to be a bit careful with the amount you add to your dish or sweet products.

The healthy properties of cardamom

The cardamom pods have countless health benefits. For example, they have proven effective in reducing high cholesterol levels and cardiovascular diseases. Just like ginger, cardamom pods can also improve digestion and act as an antioxidant. All the more reason to stock up on this 'queen of spices'.
