Cardamom (black)

Black Cardamom Whole

A lot of people will have come across cardamom but may not know there is also a black version. Member of the ginger family and a relative of the green cardamom but tend to be much bolder and stronger in flavour and slightly smoky. 

Many chefs regard black cardamom as an inferior spice to the delicate flavour of its green cousin as it can be too strong for many sweet dishes but find its place very well within meat dishes
