Blueberry Cardamom Pancakes

Gluten Free Cardamom Blueberry Pancakes

I have had the hardest time finding ground cardamom in the grocery store.  A while ago, I was in Target and got all excited as I was looking at their spices.  There was my prize and it was cheap!  I quickly put it in my cart and when I got home,  I hit my forehead with the palm of my hand.  Iy-yi-yi!  I had bought coriander.Blueberry Cardamom Pancakes

Luckily, I do have some whole cardamom pods.  I open them and grind them in a little hand grinder.  My mother let me take them when I moved to Florida.  She said with a laugh that they were probably as old as I am (see the vintage spice jar in the photos?).    It didn’t inspire a lot of faith on my part as to the flavor that I would find when I used them.  Surprisingly, however, though the pods were old, the seeds inside still have lots of flavor.Blueberry Cardamom Pancakes

I have decided a trip over to the Jacksonville Penzey’s is in order.  I like my spices younger than me!!
