Sticker shock: spices

Nearly fainted at the cost of ground cardamom--it's anywhere from $10 to $15 for a jar! Had to come home and do a little research to try to justify the cost. The research DID say that it was one of the most expensive spices. It comes from India, Sri Lanka or Guatemala...it must come on the back of an ant at those prices. It's a member of the ginger family. If I'd given it all more thought I probably could have purchased it cheaper thru the interernet or the World Market (formerly Cost Plus)...sigh...:(
