Melegueta pepper (also know as Grains of Paradise) Grains of Paradise, are the seeds of Aframomum melegueta, a perennial plant native to West Africa. The seeds are contained within small, longish pods that develop from trumpet shaped flowers. Melegueta peppercorns are just a touch spicy, which makes them  a great alternative if you are someone who can’t stand heat but still desires for flavour. The pepper has a quite strong floral aroma with traces of clove and cardamom. Grains of paradise have been used in African cooking for centuries and as well in European cooking since around the 9th century. We recommend using Melegueta pepper in marinades, on top of different vegetables and if you're a daredevil in the kitchen, you should definitely try making apple sauce pie together with this pepper! Melegueta pepper is available in 60g / 2.15 oz glass jars. Country of origin: Ghana

Melegueta pipar (tuntud ka kui Paradiisi terad) Aframomum melegueta, on Lääne Aarfikas levinud mitmeaastane taim, mis kuulub ingveriliste sugukonda. Tromperikujulistest õitest arenevad piklikud kaunad, milles küpsevad väikesed viljad.

Melegueta pipraterad on kergelt vürtsikad, muutes need suurepäraseks alternatiiviks neile, kes ei talu liigset teravust, kuid soovivad siiski lisada toidule vürtsikat maitset. 

Pipral on tugevalt lilleline aroom ning selgelt eristatav nelgi ja kardemoni maitse.

Paradiisi terasid on Aafrikas toiduvalmistamiseks kasutatud sajandeid, juba alates 9-ndast sajandist.

Soovitame kasutada Melegueta pipart köögiviljade marinaadides ja kui sa oled köögis julge katsetama, siis võiksid kindlasti õunapiruka kastet maitsestada selle pipraga!


Päritolumaa: Ghana

Melegueta pipar on saadaval 60g / 2,15 oz klaasist purgis.
