Expert Tips

Candied fruit and cardamom are the signature traditional ingredients in this Norwegian classic. Cardamom (KAR-duh-muhm), a member of the ginger family, has a pungent, warm, spicy and slight lemony-sweet flavor. It's used extensively in Scandinavian and East Indian cooking. Look for ground cardamom in the spices and herbs section of your store.
