Make way for the Queen! Cardamom was known as the queen of spices in early India so she is very welcome here at Royal Nut. A tropical plant that produces pale green oval pods, once removed cardamom contains around ten small dark brown seeds with a resinous and fruity aroma. These are crushed or ground prior to use. Cardamom imparts a warm and refreshingflavour, similar to eucalyptus, lending it to use as a breath freshener. Its warm sweet and pungent aroma incorporates camphor, lemon, mint, pepper, and floral notes. Available as pods, seeds and powder. Also referred to as green cardamom, it is important not to confuse it with brown cardamom.
