Despite living on a small city lot, our micro farm is chugging along during this time of year. We have somehow managed to cram almost 30 blueberry bushes wherever there is a free space, and right now we are reaping the rewards of being plant hoarders.

On a whim, I bought a pinch of cardamom in the bulk section of our grocery store. When the cashier scanned the little baggie she stopped and sniffed it at least three times. She said “whatever you’re making with this will be amazing”.

And how right she was.

Yeah, I forgot to put the eggs in the photo. My bad.

What Can I Use as a Substitute for Cardamom?

So you’re fresh out of cardamom or um, are like me and never bought it before? It’s cool, you know I love to give you alternatives when possible.

Simply mix 1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon and 1/4 tsp ground ginger. Add a teeny little pinch of nutmeg and you’re good to go.
