"What does that have to do with the price of eggs in China" my mom used to say that all the time when I was a kid. I didnt get it then and I still dont get it now. Girlichef was making some curry the other day and complained that cardamom pods were 17 bucks an ounce or something outlandish like that. I cant stand to see my fellow foodies up the creek with out a whisk so I decided to get her a little bag of these pricey seeds. 68 grams for $3.75 - not bad and its more cardamom than she will use in a year.
Look they sell half a pound for less than 1o bucks!
And there is always some bitter melon sitting around. I try and I try and I try again to like this stuff but trust me and trust the name - its bitter!
Let me know when you get it and share some with your friends - heck you have so much put a seed in your teapot or coffee pot it will give it a super nice flavor and aroma, oh and someone told me once to get the best flavor you should crush it lightly first - they said to crush it with your teeth - while thats great for family you might try to find an alternate method for everyone else!
