Cardamom seeds taste sweet and aromatic. They grow in green pods, which are harvested by hand just before they are fully ripe. Cardamom lends bread and cakes a very special aroma. A fact valued all over Scandinavia. The Finns and Swedes in particular can hardly imagine sweet pastries without cardamom. However, with its spicy flavour it also makes a good supplement for liqueurs and gingerbread.
