Grains of Paradise

'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.

New to me and irreplaceably fabulous

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 this stuff!

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!
