All about Cardamom

Taste

Smith & Truslow organic cardamom is green cardamom, and whether pods, hulled or ground, you’ll experience a subtle blend of ginger and pine with slight citrus undertones when you taste this precious spice.

Country of Origin
Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua
Food Complements
Breads, Chicken, Coffee, Fish, Lentils, Squash
Flavor Complements
caraway, chili, cinnamon, clove, coffee, coriander, cumin, ginger, paprika, pepper
Storage
To maximize freshness, store in a dark airtight container in a cool dry place. Once the spice is ground, flavor deteriorates with exposure to light, heat, air, humidity and time.
Refills
Refills arrive in air-tight plastic bags. Simply snip a corner of your bag, refill your Smith & Truslow jar, apply the new label and recycle the bag.

Product Testing

In response to concerns over food safety, many in the spice industry are taking measures to provide you with the information you seek. While testing has always been conducted, certificates of analysis (COAs) are now accompanying most products through the supply chain. COAs identify country of origin, certifications, best by dates, and information on product testing.

As of August 2022, Smith & Truslow spice jar labels have “best by” dates (as opposed to “packaged on” dates), and include lot numbers that correspond to the COA for the enclosed spice or herb. If you would like to review the COA for the lot we are currently selling, or for one that you have already purchased, please send an email to: [email protected]. Be sure to indicate 1) the spice name, and 2) the lot number, and we’ll respond with a PDF of the COA, as is available.
