It takes a special type of palate to like cardamom, although I think everyone should like it because it's so flavorful and full of life much like cinnamon. When I meet someone and discover they are a cardamom fan I know they will also be an adventurous eater and that's my favorite restaurant companion!
This salt blend recipe is super easy and makes a nice gift for your favorite foodie. It is also delicious rubbed into a pork roast, chicken, beef or lamb and sprinkled over veggies before roasting them to bring out a deep exotic flavor. Enjoy!
Cardamom rose petal salt
1 cup pink Himalayan sea salt, medium ground
2 tablespoons dark coffee beans, finely ground
1/4 cup dried edible organic rose petals, fine and medium crushed.
If you don't have a mortar and pestle, place your dried rose petals into a ziplock bag, seal tightly and roll a rolling pin over until you get the ground you like. Blend all the ingredients together and viola! It will store in an airtight container for about 3 months. You will love the way this salt flavors up your favorite dishes. It's great in a beef stew!
