McCormick Ground Cardamom is an aromatic spice with a sweet flavor and is often known as the Queen of Spices. It's widely used in Scandinavian cooking, and is an integral spice in curry powders. Ground cardamom also one of the principal seasonings in famous Old Bay Seasoning. Cardamom comes from the Cardamom plant, a member of the ginger family but unlike ginger, the pods (seeds) of Cardamom are used to produce the spice. Cardamom has a citrus-like, floral, soapy flavor containing some green/woody notes. It is spicy, pungent, has a menthol undertone, and is similar to ginger. Cardamom is the dried, unripened fruit of the perennial Ellettaria cardamomum. Enclosed in the fruit capsules are tiny, brown, aromatic seeds that are slightly pungent to taste.
McCormick decorticates the cardamom seed before grinding thus removing the outer husk of the seed.

Cardamom should be stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Heat will rob it of flavor and it should never be stored near a direct source of heat. Moisture or humidity will cake the ground product. It should be protected against flavor loss and moisture by making sure the container is tightly closed after every use.
Under ideal storage conditions, Cardamom may retain its flavor qualities and strength for up to three years. Prolonged storage will cause the product to lose its flavor impact and it may not provide the flavor required for the recipe.
Cardamom is used in pastries, buns, apple pie, and also adds a special flavor to hamburgers and meat loaf. Cardamom is an important ingredient in Indian, Scandinavian and Pakistani cuisines. Cardamom is excellent when used with other sweet spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
