What are the green cardamom seeds?

I propose you green cardamom seeds from Guatemala which will surprise you by its power. It is not by chance that it is called aromatic cardamom or queen of spices. The cardamom comes from a plant of the family Zingiberaceae. This name may not mean anything to you, but it is from this family that several species that you know very well like ginger or turmeric come. It comes in the form of capsules or pods filled with small black seeds, they are the ones that have a gustatory interest. Do not confuse green cardamom with black cardamom, which is mainly used in savory dishes in Indian and Chinese cuisine. Good to know: many people pronounce "cardamom". However, it has been proven that writing with an N is wrong, we do not speak of cardamom, but cardamom.

What is the flavor of green cardamom seeds?

The green cardamom seed has first of all a powerful smell which is not without reminding both camphor, citrus, eucalyptus and conifers. To the taste, it brings a wind of freshness with notes of lemon and pine sap, even pepper. Cardamom is what we call an economical spice. The strength of its taste encourages you to measure it out perfectly so as not to mask the other ingredients.

The harvest of cardamom

Green cardamom grows on a perennial aromatic plant with rhizomes, the cardamom tree. It flourishes in South America, particularly in Guatemala. However, it can also be found in India, in the region of Kerala, we then evoke the Malabar cardamom. This spice has been used in this country for a long time, we find traces of it in the XXXth century BC. But let's go back to the harvest of cardamom. In Guatemala, the harvest takes place between October and January, when the pods are mature. We can recognize this state by the stripes that are drawn on the green capsule. Harvesting is done by hand so as not to damage the fruit, which is then dried.

How to use the green cardamom seeds?

The queen of spices is also the queen of your recipes. Contrary to the black cardamom, it integrates at the same time perfectly in your sweet and salty recipes to bring a wind of freshness and an incredible pep to the most basic recipes.
