Term Definition

Decorticate (deṖkorṖtiṖkate) to peel, or remove the outer coating, bark or husk.  Cardamom Seed is sometimes sold as \decorticated\" and when it is removed from the outer pod it is ready to grind and use.

Most decorticated spices must be stored properly as the shell or husk protects the delicate flavors from oxidizing.  Shelled peanuts are a good example of a commonly sold decorticated item.  They will go rancid more quickly than those sold in the shell.

Note, seal decorticated cardamom seeds in an airtight container and store in the freezer to preserve freshness."
