Cardamom?

Does anyone know where I can find some cardamom pods? I struck out at Hoa Binh, Cardenas, and WinCo (though WinCo has plenty of ground cardamom in their amazing bulk section). At this point, instead of wasting gas driving around town, I figured I should turn to your collective wisdom.

I'll trade you homemade chai in exchange for your cardamom knowledge.

There's a tea shop in Claremont off of Yale near Viva Madrid's hallway. They sell bulk Cardamon Pods. It's really the only place I can get them. I love cardamon- one day I'll make a cardamon beer.

I buy mine at Bombay Market, on Foothill just before you get to San Antonio (look for Gary's Pool Supplies and the Upland Hi-Brow). It's not the best Indian/Desi grocery in the world, but it's the best one nearby.

Thanks ya'll. I was over near Central and San Bernadino so I stopped by the "farmers market" in that area. I found some. Whew.

Tibbi, yes to the brew!

There's an Upland Hi-Brow?! The good news just keeps coming.

Perhaps now we can find where to purchase Cardadad? Especially now that we're leaving Mothers May and starting Father's June.
