Cardamom is used in a lot of Swedish baking. I like having it in my kitchen if I decide to try a new recipe, and it is one of the ingredients. Also a very good price.

Good taste and smell.

I use cardamom mainly for baking. It is the mystery ingredient that people can't figure out in blueberry and peach pies, and in shortbread. It is potent so you don't need much to add that special something!
