For medicinal purposes you grind the little black seeds but only grind enough to use for a couple of days. Once you grind it down it does not stay fresh for long

Anni Drukier

Do you ground the all pod, or do you only use the little
black seed inside ?


i wonder if the dried spice has the same qualities...i crave this spice and now I know why. thank you!

I agree, now it's one more thing to research....

It would be nice if there was a bit more detail in this article - green or black cardamon seeds? If you buy a package do you have to do anything to use one as a lozenge or do you just pop one out of the bag and suck on it? Heard once you could place into a cup when you brewed some tea - do you open the pod or leave it whole?
