    aha, im glad you asked, because not many people know about this wonderful seed.

    grains of paradise are a cardamom like seed, with many flavors, starting at cardamom and building its way into pungent and mildy hot just like black pepper, its a little bit more expensive than black pepper, but i absolutely love the aroma and flavor, you use it just like pepper, i keep a seperate mill for it, and sub it for pepper. good luck with it, you can find it online, or at your local farmers market where a spice stand may be available.
