I'm a convert

I've been making my own vanilla extract for over a decade and used to buy my beans based on reviews at a Infamous Global seller. Was never sure what I would get. Then I found this company! The beans were beautiful! Fragrant, moist but not too moist, easy to cut open to expose the seeds and each Bean was six to seven inches long. I'm a happy extract maker! 💝💃🥳

What are Green Cardamom Pods? Why should you be cooking with them

Green cardamom pods originate from plants that are indigenous to the southeastern parts of Asia and India. Over time, this delicate spice made its way to the West but is often still underutilized in cooking. However, cooking with unfamiliar spices is the ideal way to sample global flavors. Using the green cardamom pod in cooking is also an excellent reason to access your sense of adventure by trying something new. But what are green cardamom pods, what do they taste like, and are there any substitutes? Where do you buy green cardamom? Here’s where you can learn about this uniquely flavored spice and how to add flavor to simple meals. Green cardamom grows lusciously in higher altitudes, so it is a popular crop in the mountainous regions of Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Laos, and India. However, this crop has long been grown in Guatemala since being brought to this country by the Germans in the early twentieth century. You can buy fresh high quality green cardamom pods here in bulk, directly at Slofoodgoup online ingredient store.
Cardamom Origins, where did come from and where is cardamom grown now?
What are green cardamom pods?
Differences between green and black cardamom pods

Green cardamom, like Arabica coffee, plants thrive in mountainous regions. Originally native to both the Indian Subcontinent and South East Asia in Indonesia cardamom sometimes called cardamon now thrives in other Mountainous and tropical areas of the world. Guatemala is a significant exporter of both coffee and cardamom. The lush fertile soil and the skill of family based farms produces some of the worlds best quality of coffee and other spices like allspice, Persian limes, and Coban Chili to name a few. However, despite cardamom thriving in this country, Guatemalans do not use this spice much in their own cooking and cuisine. Whole Green cardamom pods and ground green cardamom is often export to major cardamom consuming regions such as India, the Middle East, United States and Europe. In these countries, green and black cardamom are consumed and used in cooking both sweet and savory creation, as well well crafted cocktail menus. 

Green cardamom pods are actually part of ginger family. Elettaria cardamomum as these pods are often called are one of the worlds oldest spices. Most cardamom pods are cultivated in countries like Southern India, Sri Lanka, and Guatemala. These pods bring a citrusy, intense flavor to any dish. Each pod is a combination of a triangular outer shell containing seed clusters arranged in a spindle shape, containing anywhere from eight to 16 seeds with a brownish hue. These seeds can be removed and ground to powder, or the pod can be used whole. Green cardamom pods have a flowery, citrusy flavor and can be ground to use in coffee, rice, and poultry. Some cooks prefer to lightly roast the pods before adding them to a dish, but they are just as tasty in their original dried form. When stored in a tightly sealed container, green cardamom pods will last for a year or longer. Cardamom is one of the most expensive and prized spices in the world next to saffron. It is a staple in the Middle Eastern and Scandinavian diet, but has become a popular ingredient worldwide.

There are two primary varieties of cardamom—black and green. Green cardamom pods have a powerful aroma and flavor and are smaller than black cardamom pods. Though it's one of the most expensive spices, you can typically find green cardamom in your local stores. Black cardamom pods are cheaper than green cardamom pods but aren't as popular. They usually are larger in size and have a dark and smoky flavor. Additional cardamom pod types include the yellow and white sub-varieties. 

 

The flavor of cardamom: Cardamom shares similar characteristics to the ginger and turmeric species, of which it is a family member. Despite this connection, the cardamom flavor is unlike either of these spices. Green cardamom has a uniquely strong flavor and aroma. Some people describe it as having a taste that is similar to menthol, pine, or fruits. Likewise, black cardamom has a flavor similar to camphor with smoky undertones. Black cardamom further emits a cooling effect like that of mint. While you can use the green cardamom as whole pods or seeds, only the black cardamom seeds are suitable for cooking. The taste of both these cardamom varieties is quite intense so use them sparingly in cooking to avoid an unpleasant acid flavor.
