Kandyan Green Cardamom

Eucalyptus, Mint, Citrus

Often referred to as the queen of spices, cardamom reigns supreme in authentic Indian dishes like curries and masalas, but it's also used worldwide to bump up the flavor of beverages, pastries, rice dishes, meat, poultry, and more. Cardamon requires plenty of rain and shade to grow, making the higher elevation on the outskirts of the Knuckles Mountain Range in Sri Lanka an ideal match—one that also protects the biodiversity of this stunningly beautiful area. When ready for harvest, the pods are hand-picked, carefully dried, and sorted by hand according to size, weight, and color.

Interesting to note: Whole pods can be chewed after spicy meals to cleanse the breath.

Origin & Sourcing

Kandyan Forest, Sri Lanka

The sunkissed Aleppo pepper—also known was the halaby pepper—comes from my family’s native Syria. You’ll recognize the prized ingredient as the raisiny background of Ancient Halaby, which also combines other classic Middle Eastern spices like crimson-hued sumac, lemony and bright, plus the unmistakable earthiness of smoked paprika for a robust blend. As a 24-hour dry marinade for a roast leg of lamb, Ancient Halaby makes tantalizing shawarma to rival Lebanon’s legendary vertical spits. As a finishing spice for a traditional fattoush salad, it beams brightness and warmth onto the cool toss of crisp cucumbers, mint, scallions and parsley. And as a cocktail rimmer mixed with our crushed pink Peruvian salt sourced from the Andes, it gives a famous Baja-born libation—the margarita—blessings from age-old civilizations.

Tips for Success

Cooking tips from our chefs

Clumping is normal as we don’t use anti caking agents or salt. If clumping occurs simply break apart with your hands before seasoning. Try not to pour spices out of the jar over a steaming pot or pan as the steam can get in the jar and cause further clumping. For maximum flavor make sure to use with salt. Ground spices can burn quickly so make sure to use oil to help distribute the heat more evenly when making a rub.
