Grains of Paradise

Grains of Paradise is native to the coast of West Africa, stretching from Liberia to Nigeria. Also known as Alligator pepper, Atar, baking pepper, Guinea pepper, Melegueta pepper and Roman pepper, it is still grown predominately in that same region, with Ghana as the main exporter.

“My kitchen is a mystical place, a kind of temple for me. It is a place where the surfaces seem to have significance, where the sounds and odors carry meaning that transfers from the past and bridges to the future." -Pearl Bailey

The seeds are red-brown, chestnut color and shaped like pyramids. They are an aromatic spice related to ginger and have a spicy, peppery flavor with a hint of jasmine, hazelnut and citrus. Grains of Paradise should be used as a finisher. To enjoy the full flavor of the spice, use it in your peppermill. Try using Grains of Paradise in place of cinnamon, cardamom or black peppercorns. Great with potatoes, eggplants or lamb.
