OVERVIEW:

Black Cardamom while similar is very different than green cardamom. It is dried over an open fire. It has a rugged flavor and its aroma has been described as smoky, funky and downright abrasive. Grind the pods right before you need them because the seeds quickly lose their volatile oil once ground. Black Cardamom is delicious in rubs and spice blends that are used in soups and stews packed with ginger, black pepper, and chiles. 

 

Black Cardamom shows off its flavors versatility from meats and curries and delicate desserts to beverages including tea, wine, and cordials. It contains a long list of volatile oils, many of which are antioxidants and are an exceptional source of vitamins and trace minerals. No wonder it is also referred to as the queen of spices.
