Also called Paradise seeds, Guinea grains, and Melegueta pepper, these small seeds are a relative of the cardamom and ginger plants which gives them their peppery zing.  The spice is native to West Africa and during medieval times it was used to flavor food. It has also been used as a pepper substitute.  But have their own unique character; paradise seeds also have notes of citrus and an earthy pine aroma. In brewing, paradise seeds are a popular addition to summer ales and some Belgian-style beers. Sam Adams Summer Ale is one popular example.

Usage: Paradise seeds are usually added with 15 minutes left in the boil. The amount depends on taste and the recipe.
