Grains of Paradise

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 6 reviews

'Entirely different from black peppercorns and in my mind, incomparably better,' wrote Amanda Hesser of The New York Times. Related to cardamom and native to West Africa, these Grains of Paradise seeds are sweet-spicy but buttery, with a hint of lavender and juniper. Try them in a half-and-half mix with black peppercorns, in peppernut cookies, or our Carrot-Ginger Soup and see what you think. Visit our blog to learn more about grains of paradise.

Details

Grains of Paradise is indigenous to the west coast of Africa. It is a relative of both ginger and cardamom, this is what gives it its peppery floral flavor. This spice was used in Europe much the same way black pepper is used and it was also added to beverages like beer and wine. Grains of Paradise became popular when pepper became expensive and when the cost of pepper subsided Grains of Paradise became less known. Luckily it has been brought back through cooking knowledge of its added essence to its peppery flavor. Use Grains of Paradise in any dish you would add pepper to add a more floral note to your dish, or even mix with pepper in your pepper grinder to add depth.

Ingredients: Grains of paradise.

Perfect pepper alternative!

I discovered that black pepper really aggravates my reflux. Grains of paradise have replaced all of our pepper in the house. I have some in a grinder, and several shakers of ground up grains of paradise. I use it in all of my cooking and on the table. Guests and family don’t know the difference! Thank you!

Interesting 😉

I used the Grains of Paradise in a Carrot-Ginger Soup. It was very tasty! The recipe was on the Spice House website.

delightful spice and everything nice!!

Love the delicate balance of piquancy with a touch of the sweet and mild heat. perfect in vegetable stir fry and to add a certain mystery to chicken, fish and red meats. Regularly used in place of plain black pepper for complexity in chutneys and brisket.

Peppery but more!

Came across this at a friend’s thanksgiving dinner. Didn’t see it in grocery store until I came here. It’s got a very nice pepper taste but more sophisticated, almost cardamom/clove-ish sweet undertone to it.

Great for coffee!

I bought this after watching a youtube video; Emmymadeinjapan, and it's very good when added to coffee. The spices that I received are fresh and in a nice bag. Will buy again from this company. Price was good as well.
