As you learned last December, cardamom is a member of the ginger family.
The rich branch of the ginger family.
Okay, cardamom is a little expensive.
But, it's sweet.
A no-calorie sweet.
And cardamom adds a nice touch to Middle East recipes.
And other recipes, too.
And the bulgur, which will get a fried-rice texture.
