   Introduction

Cardamom the Queen of all spices has a history as old as human race. It is one of the high priced spices in the world. Cardamom is grown in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. It is the dried fruit of an herbaceous perennial plant. Cardamom, an aromatic spice is a member of the ginger family Elettaria cardamomum maton this small pungent seed is used worldwide for flavoring variety of items including coffee, curries and desserts.


   Description

 

Cardamom comes from the seeds of a ginger-like plant. The small, brown-black sticky seeds are contained in a pod in three double rows with about six seeds in each row. The pods are between 5-20 mm (1/4”-3/4”) long, the larger variety known as ‘black’, being brown and the smaller being green. White-bleached pods are also available. The pods are roughly triangular in cross section and oval or oblate. Their dried surface is rough and furrowed, the large ‘blacks’ having deep wrinkles. The texture of the pod is that of tough paper. Pods are available whole or split and the seeds are sold loose or ground. It is best to buy the whole pods as ground cardamom quickly loses flavor. Indian cardamom enjoys a premium preference in the Middle East, Japanese and Russians who relish it for its distinct enriching properties.
