Tweens Masala

Cardamom Pods, Black




Black cardamom pods are rougher than green cardamom. In fact, you might call the flavor downright abrasive at times. This rugged quality is what makes it so delightful in rubs and spice blends such as garam masala or when added to rustic Indian goat stews packed with gingerblack pepper, and chiles. Whole cardamom is also is used in pickling and charcuterie, and it has a fondness for buttery pound cakes and chocolate desserts.

Black cardamom is grown throughout Guatemala, Vietnam, and India. At first, it was seen as a poor substitute for green cardamom, but recently (in the last two to three thousand years, which is recent for spices) it has become valued for its own flavor.
