Jiva Organic Green Cardamom Review

The Jiva Organic Green Cardamom has such an amazing aroma, and adds a great zing to dishes!

I had never used Cardamom before, but I had heard about it being used in some Indian dishes. When I got the chance to try it out for myself, I was excited. I love using spices to cook with, and was looking forward to experiencing the flavor of Green Cardamom.

The bag is very nicely sided, and it should last you quite a while. Immediately after opening, the aroma just filled the room. I did some research online to see what other uses people had for Cardamom, and one was as a breath freshener. So right off the bat, I took a pod, and chewed on it. The flavor was nice, and it did make my breath feel fresher and I'm sure improved the smell. 

Next use, I took the pods and opened them up, and took out the seeds inside. I used a herb grinder, and ground them up. I added some of the ground Cardamom into cookies that I was baking. The flavor was fantastic, rich and aromatic. I have enjoyed using this with desserts as a sprinkle on top. I love using it with cinnamon, they compliment each other well.

I am still finding ways to use the Green Cardamom, there are so many lovely recipes and uses that you can find online!

Very pleased with the Jiva Organic Green Cardamom! My only negative is I wish that there was some bits written on the packaging on how to use it. If it wasn't for the search engines I wouldn't have had a clue!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
