I'm cleaning and reorganizing my spice and herb cupboard. I just found that I have 3 full bottles of ground cardamom. Probably enough to last me a life time. Does anyone have recipe suggestions to help me use it up?
The cardamom coffee cake from Moosewood is amazing .
Cardamom is nice with roasted carrots along with cumin.
I use it in curries.
But if it is old chuck it.
Naturally, as a main component in curry and pastry.
My favorite use is a tablespoon of it with diced onion, smashed garlic, ground cloves, black pepper, and salt. Cook mixture in a stick of butter, let cool, and marinade a cut up chicken in it for a day or so.
Pour into baking dish and cook uncovered in the oven.
Serve with white rice and veggie of choice. I always like summer squash with the sauce.
Ground cardamon degrades pretty quickly. How long have those bottles been in there, and have they been opened?
My Bombay Kitchen, a recent COTM has a cardamon cake that people have been raving about.
Delicious in oatmeal.
There were a few threads on cardamom in the last few years that have many more suggestions.
