Green Cardamom Pods, Whole

Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Online Specialty Food Store"

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, grind the whole pods including the shells.

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.

This made the best chai tea!

Cardamom Pods of Bliss

Best cardamom pods ever, on a whole other level, plump, bumptious, frisky, playful, packed with seeds and seed syllables of light. Make other pods from chain spice stores pale in comparison. Can't wait to run out of these so I can get some more.

The best tasting spices!

I just got green and black cardamom from Reluctant Trading Experiment. These spices are head and shoulders above others available! These pods are almost twice as big as those I've bought anywhere else. And the flavor is distinct and pungent. So much more flavorful and layered. Highly recommend!
