Did You Know? Cardamom is a member of the ginger family. Its tiny seeds are encapsulated in small pods about the size of a cranberry; each pod contains about twenty seeds. Ground cardamom is used most often in baking.

Purchasing: Look for rum extract near vanilla and other flavorings in the baking aisle of your supermarket.

Success: We recommend using butter instead of margarine for the best buttered rum flavor.
