How can I use black cardamon pods?
I brought back some large black cardamon from Vietnam. They are about the size of a walnut and very fragrant, though much stronger and smokier than green pods. I know they can be used for broth, but how else? Can I somehow grind them for a spice mixture? If so, how do I do that?

Green cardamom works too and adds a light herb-y fragrance.
Pre-ground works but you may need to add a bit more since cardamom loses it's power quickly after grinding.
