Paradise Seeds 2 grams
Aframomun melegueta. Also called "Grains of paradise", "Guinea grains" and "Melegueta pepper", these small paradise seeds look like cardamom but have a character all their own. The spice is native to West Africa and during medieval times was used to flavor food. It has also been used as a pepper substitute. While it does have a peppery zing, it also has notes of citrus and an "earthy" pine aroma.
We love to add it to Belgian beers or Saisons to add a lemony, peppery character. In fact, it's a staple in our Son of Krakatoa Ale kits!
