Cardamom (also spelled Cardamon) is the fruit or seed of Elettaria cardamomum, a herbaceous perennial of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). The seeds have a warm, slightly pungent, and highly aromatic flavour somewhat reminiscent of camphor. Origionally cultivated in India, Cardamom was probably imported into Europe around A.D. 1214. Today, cardamom is cultivated in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Guatemala, Mexico, Thailand and Central America. The spice known as cardamom is the fruit of several plants of the genera Elettaria belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, whose principal member is Elletaria Cardamomum. The plant it self is a perennial herb with a thick, fleshy rootstock which sends up flowering stems from 6 to 12 feet high. Cardamom is usually purchased either in seed pods: In its "decorticated" form, that is, taken out of the seed pods: or, the seeds are ground into a powder. This last is the most common form in which cardamom is sold. Cardamom is used in a variety of cuisines today, primarily in and around the Indian subcontinent and in Scandinavia.
