Carrot-Ginger Soup with Grains of Paradise
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.

My new pepper for most dishes
Like an amped-up and more complex version of pepper, this is a spice I’d never heard of but which we all need to be enjoying everywhere and on everything.
Love the Grains of Paradise, a new depth of flavor with or without pepper added. Many compliments on the flavor of what we cook and how we use it. Thank you so much, until a recipe called for it, we never knew it existed. Kudo's to you. Will order again cause the customer service was great and the order came quickly. Thnx. pmc
Mix with black , green peppers
It had been recommended to me after my heart attack. I started using it instead of salt. Now I can imagine using anything else! It starts off floral but then gets spicy
Good product and ships fast. This is my second bag of Grains of Paradise. I'll continue using it for life!
