Photo form: Leslie Seaton
Aframomum melegueta, Eng. melegueta pepper, malagueta pepper, grains-of-paradise, a pungent seed of a West African plant. It is related to cardamom, which has a similar odor. The tiny grains have a hot and peppery taste and are used as a spice. As they are inexistent today they can be substituted with black pepper or a combination of black pepper and paprika. Nola calls for this pepper frequently in his recipes. [Anon/Anderson 1962:11:52: 56; ES: Medieval Spanish Chef. malagueta.Feb 5, 16, manera. Feb 22, 15; libra. Nov 27, 15 etc ES: Renfrow.
