Default Cardamom replacement question

Hi all

I have a recipe that calls for 1 tsp. of Cardmom.
Went to the store and lo & behold, NO cardamom. What can I use as
a substitute?

Thank you.

I'm not sure there is any acceptable substitute for cardamom. Perhaps
one reason it's so expensive.

There is no substitute. Nothing else tastes like it. What is the recipe?

Nothing I can think of- what are you making?

Try another store? Sometimes it's spelled with a K, but if you really
cannot find it, if it's a recipe for a baked good (like a cake or
cookie), then you could probably use Cinnamon instead, but it won't
taste like it's intended to. Otherwise, I have no clue.

Ohh, and like someone else mentioned, if you find it, be prepared to
spend a pretty penny, but it's so worth it!

Cardamom Cherry Bread

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 Stick Butter -- Softened
3/4 C Granulated Sugar
2 Eggs -- Beaten
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 C King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Tbsp Cardamom
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 C Fresh Pitted Cherries -- (or 1/2 lb unpitted
cherries)

Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Grease a 9 x 5" loaf pan.

Cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs and extract.

Soft dry ingredients together and add to wet ingredients. Stir in
the cherries and mix until combined.

Spoon batter into loaf pan. Bake for 45 - 55 min. Insert a skewer
or cake tester; it will come out dry when the bread is done. Cool for
10 min in the pan and turn out on a rack to fully cool. This is best
eaten the next day.

This is a great bread to serve with coffee. I served it when I had
some guests from Norway & they liked it very much.

Oh, I love cherries! Do you think that canned cherries would substitute
well, now that it's winter? A little hard to get fresh cherries here in
the northeast!

I don't see why not. I think I used them once in this recipe. :-)

There's really no substitute. However, it might work to use nutmeg,
allspice or mace. It won't taste the same, but it might be good.

Nothing will replace the cardamom flavor. It's *that* unique.
Now that I've said my piece about it....

I have found it nearly impossible to get ground cardamom, and discovered
that it's because it very rapidly loses its aroma and flavour once in
the ground form. Can you buy whole cardamom pods locally? If so, then
take about 20 or so of these, crack open the pods and put the little
black seeds inside into a pestle and mortar, discarding the green pod
cases. Then you can grind up the seeds and have fresh cardamom powder.
It is a beautiful spice and the fresh ground seeds are totally different
to using the whole pods in things such as Indian cookery.

Do you live in the USA? If yes, what are the names of the grocery stores you
have access to?

If you have any Indian or Pakistani grocery stores in your area, check
with them. They'll probably have the whole pods in a couple of
different varieties. Grind up the seeds inside the pods as another
poster described, and you're in business.

Sorry, no - I'm in the UK, and cardamom pods are available pretty much
everywhere in supermarkets, or from online spice suppliers.
