A member of the ginger family, Black Cardamom is a relative of Green Cardamom, but they’re far from the same plant. Black Cardamom has some of the same flavor notes as the green, especially an uplifting menthol element, but it’s also smoky. Our Whole Black Cardamom pods impart a warming, smoky flavor, perfect for infusing into spicy, savory recipes. While Black Cardamom is often considered “inferior” to the more delicate green pods, it has a charm of its own in savory recipes, or where you want a stronger flavor.
