EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For spicy flavor, omit dried milk or creamer. If dried milk or creamer is used, flavor will be less spicy and a little sweeter.

Cardamom can be purchased either in pods, as seed or a powder. Cardamom pods hold up to 20 small seeds. This very fragrant spice has a slight lemony-sweet flavor with a touch of pepper and ginger.
