Cardamom is a popular spice in Asian cuisine. Also in the Indian Chai tea which is becoming more and more popular in this country, cardamom has a firm place.
Cardamom is sweetish and has a fruity-refreshing pungent aroma of camphor and eucalyptus. Cardamom is used in cakes and biscuits, in Christmas baking and in mulled wine.
Cardamom seeds mainly contain essential oils that stimulate the appetite and promote digestion. Like many aromatic-hot spices of the Orient, cardamom is considered an aphrodisiac.
The seeds contain an essential oil, which gives them a spicy, sweetish spicy aroma. As it flies easily, whole capsules should be preferred to the cinnamon-like looking cardamom powder and the seeds should only be mortared or ground if necessary.
