Cardamom Pods

Certified: Kosher

Cardamom is a wonderful spice with a Middle-Eastern culinary history used to flavor many foods and drinks. It has a strong unique taste and an intense aromatic fragrance.

Cardamom Pods vs. Ground Cardamom

For recipes requiring whole cardamom pods, generally 10 pods equals 1.5 teaspoons of ground cardamom.

Green cardamom is the most common form of cardamom. To retain its green color and ensure the pods stay closed, the green cardamom is harvested prematurely, locking in a warm aroma and exotic flavor that is then released during cooking. The whole pods can be used in recipes, or the seeds can be removed and added to dishes in ground or whole form. To grind the seeds, we recommend first opening the pods by crushing them with a mortar and pestle, and then grinding the seeds without the pods. If roasting or toasting the cardamom, it is better to use whole pods because ground spices will burn too easily. It's best to buy cardamom pods if you don't cook with the spice often since the pods have a longer shelf life than the powder.

“Nuts is rapidly becoming my go-to place for spices and seasonings. The Cardamom pods were so fresh. I make homemade Chai and go through a lot of these so it's nice to be able to buy a big bag for a fair price instead of a million little overpriced spice bottles from the grocery store. I've really come to trust Nuts when it comes to quality products for a great price.”

“Received my order and was excited to see the little extra item that was included. The spices of Star Anise and Cardamom pods will make, making my wife's homemade Chai Tea even better. I will definitely order again.

Thank you so much

WOW! I received my package the day after I made my online order.
YUM! The cardamom and candies were delicious (and even the box they came made us smile).
