Grains of Paradise


“Aframomum melegueta”

Grains of Paradise were named by medieval spice traders seeking to inflate the price; they claimed that these seeds grew only in Eden, and had to be collected as they floated down the rivers out of paradise. Once used as a substitute for black pepper, they have a zesty flavor reminiscent of pepper, with hints of flowers, coriander and cardamom. Prized by both brewers and chefs.
