Cardamom, Ground - Spices and Herbs

Cardamom, Ground

While many spices come from the fruit of plants, few have as fruity or enticing an aroma as cardamom. Cardamom seeds are found in an oval-shaped pod, the fruit of the plant, and are generally between a quarter of an inch and an inch long.

They have a very strong flavor, with hints of lemon and floral.

We source our Spice Islands® cardamom from Guatemala and Honduras.
