Cardamon, whole pods (organic)

93p per 10g
The greener pods are picked slightly earlier, with plenty of flavour, which might be preferable in products where colour is important. As the pods ripen, they become more yellow and contain more essential oil. Our Guatemalan Cardamom pods are exceptional. The process-grade pods we supply have the highest oil content, and the best quality in terms of taste and smell.

Why We Stock It

We trust our supplier.  They know the plants well and have an expert of knowledge. Anything we want to know, there is always someone on the other side of the phone (Or email) who will talk to us about what’s happening at the farm and every detail (even the quality of the soil).
