Olivier Rœllinger's words

This large seed is a less intensely flavoured variant of the more common type of green cardamom. Its characteristically light, smoky aroma comes from having been dried by a fire. Tastes of wood and resin offset the camphoraceous hints that both black and green cardamom are known for.
Cut the pod in fours and put ¼ into a pot-au-feu, vegetable stock, or shellfish bouillon. Black cardamom is part of our Poudre de Tonkin, which is used to make lightly flavoured stocks and bouillons.
