In loving memory of our beloved chef and friend Gerri on her birthday, our awesome employees got together and picked one of her all-time favorite things as their group staff pick this week: cardamom! The popular spice is made from the seed pods of various plants in the ginger family. Cardamom has a strong, pungent flavor and aroma, with hints of lemon, mint and a touch of smokiness.
It’s especially popular in baked goods and to add flavor to beverages like coffee and tea. You’ll find it here at The Corner in both pod and seed form in our bulk herbs section and with our great selection of spices. 🙂
