Grains of Paradise (Melegueta Pepper)
Grains of Paradise, also known as Melegueta pepper or Guinea pepper, is a rare spice indigenous to the coastal regions of West Africa, from Sierra Leone to Angola. The Melegueta plant, however, is not related to the pepper vine but is a member of the ginger family. The sphere-like seeds of Grains of Paradise look very much like cardamom seeds. (Cardamom is also a member of the ginger family.) Grains of Paradise has a pungent flavor with a peppery bite and hints of cardamom and camphor.

Use it wherever an exotic pepper seasoning is needed, especially in the cuisine of North Africa, including Moroccan and Tunisian dishes.
