Grains of Paradise

From the exotic shores of West Africa comes this intriguing spice, often described as a vibrant blend of ginger, cardamom and pepper. Also known as Guinea or alligator pepper, Grains of Paradise has a zesty flavor and is an excellent substitute for cardamom and black pepper. Use it medicinally as an anti-inflammatory agent. Grind from a mill to add a wonderful twist to any dish. Combine with garlic, thyme and olive oil for bread dipping or enliven your coffee and tea by adding some grains during the steeping process.
