The only cardamom worthy enough to showcase its bold, cardamom-y flavor in this granola? Burlap & Barrel in Queens, New York. They work with growers around the world to find the very best spices and pay the farmers a fair price.
Burlap & Barrel's cardamom is grown on one of the only single-estate cardamom farms in Guatemala's cloud forests, an ideal environment for growing cardamom, which thrives in temperate high-altitude environments with plenty of rainfall. The comparatively low temperatures during harvest season (November-January) ensure that the cardamom has very high levels of fragrant essential oils.
