It's good in sugar cookies. It goes well with cinnamon, nutmeg, mace and cloves. It's really good with vanilla, lemon or lime. It's a great addition to a home made curry spice mix. I also love it with beef, allspice, corriander, cloves and black pepper in a stew.

The green and black cardamom pods are used in the Indian dish, butter chicken.

Scandinavian recipes come to mind.

The pods will last indefinitely, from what I've read. Then break them open and crush the seeds. We have some great Scandinavian cooks here!

Also in Rogan josh, almost all of the northern stews, and the seeds are used in poppadom, and Dosa(Scroll)...the Indian HUGE rolled, stuffed crepe.

Makes a lovely addition to Ice cream or Sorbet too, for either dessert or intermezzo.

Teas, Coffees, pulled teas, Chai, lassi. . .the uses are numerous, and plenty.

Anywhere you can think citrus, you can think cardamom.

Isn't it funny that it's Indian and Scandinavian cuisines that are big on cardamom? They really have so little in common.

There is a Russian bakery in seattle that has the most amazing cardamom apple pastries. My favorite is like a cinnamon roll but made with grannie smith apples and cardamom. They also have a cardamom braid that is wonderful.

I make a tart occasionally with the same flavors.
Puff pastry in a large square
thinly sliced apples dredged in sugar, cardamon and cinnamon, arranged in rows on pastry
butter drizzled on
baked and then painted with orange marmalade, and topped off with a salted caramel sauce

Yummy
