My Sister gave me a huge jar of cardamom. I liked the smell and said I would use it. It is fresh and I am sure it is tasty however she takes care of her mother-in-law and lives there as well. The rest of the household does NOT like it. So, I was supper jazzed when I stumbled upon this group. I am looking forward to learning how to use this spice and hopefully make my Sister happy that she gave it to me. If you knew her, you would understand. She takes her spices VERY seriously!!
I love cardamom. Hubby calls it "conundrum" and pronounces it horrid, therefore, I rarely cook with it. Sigh. I am joining the group, though, because finding postings here will bring back fine cardamom memories of a seeded bread in an Afghan restaurant or a bowl of warm "firnee" (Afghan almond and cardamom custard). Speaking of firnee ... hmmm. I could make some just for me!
