I had never heard of Grains of paradise until the a certain "food guru" talked about it on his G**d Eats show. I have found that although they are pricey, they have a certain floral quality that is unlike regular pepper. I make this mix up in small batches to keep it fresh, but also so that I always have some ready to go on hand.
