Lustables: Organic Green Cardamom Pods

A spice that’s the perfect fit for sweet and savory dishes. 

Cardamom, as you may have noticed, is making its way into everything. It’s in tea, in tart crusts, in fruity drinks, in fig jam, in curries and if you haven’t tried it in a cup of coffee, you’re missing out. But cardamom is not only for food; it can also be used to treat a variety of ailments, from congestion to depression.

Cardamom pods retain the aroma and flavor better than already ground cardamom, ensuring a fresher flavor when cooking with it. These organic green pods from Le Sanctuaire come in a sleek reusable container with a screw top, meaning you can buy bulk the next time around.

Available for $11.95 from Gilt Taste.
