Cardamom. What can you tell me about it?
Advertisements [?]
I have a recipe for Greek Egg & Lemon Soup...it calls for 4 green cardamom pods, crushed, along with lemon zest and bay leaf, all of which get simmered for about 20 minutes in chicken stock before you discard them and add egg.

My concern is that the recipe says "4 green cardamom pods or two whole cloves" and I'm not really a clove fan. How overpowering is cardamom? What's it taste like?

And YES, I know someone's going to say "tastes like chicken" or "tastes like CARDAMOM, you MORAN"...but that's the risk you take when posting a thread like this.

:-)
