cardamomThere’s a recipe for Orange Cardamom Coffee in the Arizona Republic (January 25, 2006). It sounds really good AND it looks good, too. I wondered if anyone had tried it?

Seeds from 2 cardamom pods
1/2 cup whole coffee beans
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 cups cold water
6 ounces Grand Marnier (optional)
Whipped cream for garnish
Grated orange zest for garnish
Special equipment: coffee grinder

Grind the cardamom seeds and coffee beans together in a coffee grinder. Using a standard coffeemaker, spoon the coffee-cardamom mixture into a coffee filter. Sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg on top of the coffee grounds. Pour cold water into the coffeemaker and brew.

Divide the coffee and Grand Marnier, if desired, among four mugs and stir. Top each with a dollop of whipped cream, sprinkle with orange zest and serve.

Makes four servings.
