Cardamom Recipes

I have 2 spice jars of CARDAMOM that I need to use up. I have googled for a few recipes but was wondering if anyone had any family favorites that uses cardamom (ground). Cookies, coffee cake, muffins, quick breads... something along those lines.

Many thanks,
Kaelle

Cardamom is one of my favorite spices to use for my apple pie! It will be a taste test as it all depends on what kind of apples one uses! I also made an apple pie jam and used cardamom in it!

That is a common spice used in Scandanavian baking. You might google for Swedish, Danish or Norwegian recipes.

Ever made chai tea? YUM! I like it with sugar too.

Ingredients

3qt water

1tbsp fresh grated ginger

1tsp black peppercorns

5 cardamom pods, broken open

1 sticks cinnamon

1t whole cloves

Instructions

Place all ingredients into a 4 quart pot, cover and simmer on low for at least an hour. Try not to let it boil. You may dip into it as early as 20 minutes, but the longer it simmers the better.

Excellent when done in the crock pot, too.

To make with black tea, turn off burner and add a bag or two of good quality darjeeling tea, let steep for 10 minutes or to taste and remove bag.

Ladle the tea into a big mug (through a strainer if need be), add honey, milk (optional), and sip slowly.

Notes

Wards off colds, I'm tellin' you. Mom making this for us at night is one of my earliest memories. Major comfort food

Instant Chai Tea

1 cup nonfat dry milk powder

1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer

1 cup French vanilla flavored powdered non-dairy creamer

2 1/2 cups white sugar

1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

In a large bowl, combine milk powder, non-dairy creamer, vanilla flavored creamer, sugar and instant tea. Stir in ginger, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. In a blender or food processor, blend 1 cup at a time, until mixture is the consistency of fine powder. To serve: Stir 2 heaping tablespoons Chai tea mixture into a mug of hot water. You may choose to omit the French vanilla creamer, and use 2 teaspoons vanilla extract instead. To do so, mix the vanilla into the sugar, let it dry, then break the sugar into small lumps.

I gave out jars of this for Christmas presents last year and they were a big hit!

I added about 1/2 Tbsp of cardamom to the last pineapple upside-down cake that I made - it was wonderful!

I add cardamom to my apple pies as well. It's also great with pears (epicurious.com has a wonderful pear galette recipe, to which I add cardamom).

I use it in my Swedish meatballs both in the meatball and in the cream sauce, along with dill

I use it on my oatmeal along with a little numeg, butter and chopped walnuts. Tasts like a danish!
