Burlap and Barrel Smoked Black Cardamom 1.5oz

Grown by a group of farmers led by Sahu Saioji in Silma Marak, in northeastern India, Burlap and Barrel ground Smoked Black Cardamom has a flavor that is more resinous and bold than that of its softer, sweeter cousins yellow or green cardamom. These pods are pink and purple when fresh, and they turn black as they're smoked over an open fire.

Sprinkle into stews, lentils and sauces for an irresistible smoky, herbal flavor. If you prefer the camphor flavor to shine, add a pinch to a cold dip or salad dressing. (This smoked black cardamom is at its best in dishes that cook for hours, so its flavor can soften and meld with the other spices).
