Green Cardamom from Guatemala – 50g


Green cardamom (scientific name elettaria cardamomum) is a dried fruit of a perennial plant of the zingiberaceae family, native to India. Its first written references date back to 1550 B.C. In Guatemala, this plant was brought in 1914 by the German farmer Oscar Majus Klöffer.

Cooking tips : In the beginning, people used cardamom as an aromatic spice for medicines but, thanks to its versatility, it has many other uses: flavouring for coffee, rice, chicken and other food, like in the Arab world, but also as an ingredient of great value for perfumes, oils, essential oils, diet foot, and aromatic spice for spirits and other beverages. In Europe, they have also used it for medical purposes.

Le Comptoir Des Poivres has worked on an even higher quality new product range.

For several months the company have been pooling their skills, and they have sought out products of unquestionable quality using the same philosophy – they look for products directly at their production locations, they refuse any chemical treatments both on the plant and the product and any irradiation (hypocritically called ionisation), they ensure that the people working in the plantations work in optimal conditions, they require many selection processes to keep only the most exceptional grains or berries, they refuse any long storage and transport the products without intermediaries, that is to say with maximum traceability.

“Since my rural childhood, my life has been a perpetual search for authentic flavours, either while pottering round vegetable gardens, on walks through forests, local markets, at auctions, bakeries, grandmothers’ or mothers’ kitchens, in master cooks’ kitchens or even on trips across the world.

I like to tell stories about the wonders that surround us and the passion of men and women who give the best of themselves to bring you something exceptional.
My objective: to source the best, the most exclusive, the most authentic and most surprising and then narrate, share, transmit and astonish…”
