Cooking With Cardamon:
Cooking with the Cardamon oil and not the powder also gives you some of the digestive benefits of Cardamom oil along with the flavor.* Cardamom is great not only for promoting healthy digestion, but also for soothing the digestive system and slowing bowel looseness*, so when you’re experiencing occasional stomach discomfort, it can be helpful to add Cardamom to water or tea.
As with any oil, it is best to add Cardamom directly into any liquid already going into the recipe. This will ensure that the oil gets evenly distributed. Olive oil, coconut oil, honey, or syrup will especially help here. Other spices that Cardamom blends well with include cinnamon and clove. You can decide whether to use these spices in their essential oil form, or in the ground form as a mix of essential oils can sometimes be overpowering depending on the recipe.
