Lesser known than the green variety, White Cardamom is a cooking staple in some parts of Central Asia and China.
It lacks the peppery overtones of green or black cardamom, but has a fresh aroma that brightens dishes. It compliments stews and adds freshness to the flavors of broths and stocks.
It is an ideal seasoning in Chinese soups and broths. White Cardamom also pairs well with star anise when preparing braised beef. It is a key spice in our Silk Road Blend. It can be used whole or ground.
