Green Cardamom Pods, Whole

I wish there was a way you could scratch 'n sniff these photos so you could smell the Green Cardamom that my friend Divakar sources for us in Southwest India. These Whole Green Cardamom Pods have an absolutely gorgeous aroma. They have notes of grapefruit, ginger, mint, licorice and menthol.

In fact, our Michelin star chef customers agree. We give you access to the exact same green cardamom lots that they are buying from us on a regular basis.

Some recipes call for green cardamom to be used whole, while others ask for green cardamom powder. When a recipe calls for powder, simply squeeze the pods and remove the seeds. You can discard the shells.

Use a mortar and pestle to grind the seeds. Continue grinding until the seeds turn into a fine powder.

This cardamom and all of our spices are unbelievably fresh because we buy right from the farms in India in small batches. Nothing ever sits. It will be obvious what I'm talking about the second you open the package. 

NOTE: The 4 ounce size tube is no longer available.

Very fresh cardamom pods I was surprised

Cardamom is FI-YA

Get this please. I drop on in coffee. Do me a favor? Look up the benefits and then see what I mean. You want the best. this is it. I float on in my morning java. It's delicious.


The green cardamom is absolutely amazing.

Wow, I couldn't stop smelling it!

The smell was so amazing that I thought I'd wear it as a perfume. I decided to look into whether perfume companies use this to make perfumes and found out, YES, and it used in very high end perfumes. The taste is amazing and my son and I add it to almost every meat or soup we make. I'm telling all my friends about this company. Buying it in a grocery store isn't the same. Buying in the pods from you and grinding it myself makes all the difference in the world.
