    Spice subsitutions

    Need to know if there is any subsitution for Caradmom?
    Or if there is any combo of other herbs and spices that may work.
    Only need small about for a dish I want to try. And to be quite honest, I don't want to spend $15.00 for a jar, when I may hate the dish.
    Thank you in advance

    I'm not sure what would be a good substitution, cardamom is an excellent spice. I'm assuming that you don't have access to a bulk spice counter at your grocery store, where you can buy just as much as you need instead of buying the whole jar. I do this a lot if it is something i know is not going to be used often, and I usually get very fresh spices, not something that has been in a jar for awhile. Also, what are you using it for? If it's Cardamom Bread, I'd say go with the cardamom, if it's something with a lot of spices, you may be able to leave it out alltogether.

    Erin's right ... some type of bulk store is a great place to buy spices. If you don't have a bulk store nearby, a lot of health food stores sell spices loosely so you can only buy what you need. It's a lot cheaper to buy spices this way and you get the benefit of not having them sit around your house getting stale.

    Cardamom is often used in Scandinavian xmas baking, cookies, breads etc. There really isn't a substitute if that's what you're cooking. On the other hand, if you're making some type of curry, which also often calls for cardamom, I'd say just leave it out. It likely won't be missed.

    You can also just buy the pods and take out the seeds to grind-that's how I do it. Don't buy the white pods though-they bleach them-get the green ones. Di
