An ancient spice native to the tropical forests of the East, cardamom was brought to Rome and Greece where it was used for perfume. Also, because of the labor involved with harvesting cardamom, it is one of the most expensive spices we use. In Minnesota we taste cardamom in Scandinavian holiday baking. Before it made its way to the Northern climates, cardamom became a staple in Middle Eastern, Indian and African cooking, primarily to flavor rice and vegetables.
