Cardamom is the ground seed of a tropical fruit in the Zingiberacae, or ginger family known as Elettaria cardamomum. The seeds are found in oval-shaped fruit pods that are between 1/4- and 1-inch long.
Cardamom comes from India, Guatemala, and Ceylon. In India, cardamom is traditionally used in curry blends, and in Scandinavian countries it is commonly added to breads. Most of the world's cardamom crop is used in Arabic countries as a flavoring for coffee.
Cardamom has an intense, pungent, sweet flavor.
