How I Love Thee

Cardamom

Cardamom

Cardamom – How I do love you.  I opened the jar and drew in a deep breath.  Can I sprinkle you in my laundry and on my pillows and toss you in my closets?  May I wear a sack filled with your loveliness around my neck and lift you to my nose and breathe in deep whenever I want?

When I open your pods and empty out the delicious innards of your soul – my mouth waters and cannot wait to crush you and add you to my wassail and my shortbread.

You, O Cardamom, are God’s gift to mankind, well, at least to ME.  And I am thankful for the opening of my senses whenever you are around.

Enjoy!

  1. This is such a magic ingredient! My mom add it in tea and coffee, it give them wonderful aroma while sipping. 🙂 ahh

  2. Cardamons are used in perfumes. I liked them in my curries but some dishonest merchants sell those that have been bleached (white pods, which has been used). Always go green 😉
