Possibly an odd Q but I have a recipe I want to make tonight that calls for ground cardamom. Now I'm highly unlikely to be able to purchase any before I need it and I only have the pods at home and no pestle and mortar so my question is - has anyone ground the seeds by hand without a p+m and how did you do it? Would crushing with the back of a spoon work do we think or are they way too hard for that? Having not yet used them in anything I have no idea as to their 'hardness' index or whatever the technical term is!
Biscotti! I'll try that. Thank you!!
Ooh, ok. Thanks again.
I can probably find one from my many 'pretty pebbles picked up from the beach' collection. I have a cat in the garden!!
Thanks for the idea though - I could maybe team wih a hardwearing bowl and see how it goes.
You bunch are stars I've gone from perplexed to chock-full of suggestions in a few hours - hugs all!
I often roll seeds with a rolling pin on a chopping board or for nuts I stick them in a bag and bash them
Use the end of the rolling pin not the middle
