Cardamom is a typical spice in Asian and Arabic cuisine. It is an important part of many spice mixes, in particular curries and masala mixes. In Arabic countries it flavours coffee and mocha.
In Europe its spicy-sweet flavour is indispensable in Advent baking, in particular for Lebkuchen gingerbread and Spekulatius biscuits.
Cardamom can also be used for fruit salads and desserts, fried fish, veal, lamb, mince, sausage, pies, rice dishes and curries, and for flavouring tea, coffee, cocoa or warm milk.
As a medicinal herb, Cardamom soothes the stomach and has an antispasmodic effect.
EDORA Cardamom is particularly flavourful, as only the cardamom seeds and not the whole capsule with shell are ground.
Shelf Life / StorageSpices lose some of their flavour through incorrect storage. Spices should be stored in a cool, dry, dark and airtight place.
