Given your description, I assume that you are speaking of green cardamom. I, however, use black cardamom in my chili. It is a radically different spice from the green, and imparts a smokiness to the chili. I highly recommend exploring that. So, yes, for me it is a staple.

I had a red pepper spice by Astor out of Jacksonville, Florida. They are out of business, now, to my regret. Their pepper was not hot but has a very nice flavor and smell. I would use this spice without having to use salt or any other spice. It would change the smell of meat to delicious even as you sprinkled it on. I have not been able to find anything ...

The flavor and aroma of spices deteriorates over time, particularly when exposed to air and light. How much time? ...hard to say...but buying whole spices and grinding them yourself when needed lengthens shelf life...as does storing them in airtight containers and in a dark, cool place. Health and safety is not a concern here. Flavor and aroma is. We are ...
As with almost anything you can purchase ground, you can also purchase sumac berries whole: You may be able to buy them whole locally, you can certainly buy them whole online, as that picture is from Amazon. Spices lose their flavor quickly once ground, it's almost always better to grind your own. If you don't have a spice grinder, I recommend checking ...
