Spice question

Spice Question

My recipe calls for cardamon/cardoman (sp?). I have whole seeds. Do I open them up and use the inners or do I use the whole seed or do I do something else? Please help me. I'm making Iraqi Potato/Chicken Knishes for the Passover Seder tomorrow night. Thanks.

Sounds like you have pods with the seeds inside. Remove the pods and discard. Save the seeds.

If your recipe calls for the cardamom to be ground, then it's the seeds you grind.
