Grains of Paradise
Find this uncommon spice in traditional West African spice mixtures and exotic gins. These grains pack a pepper-like heat and flavor combined with elements of ginger and cardamom. Also known as Melegueta Pepper, Guinea Pepper, Alligator Pepper or Ginny Grains.
Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
You can visit their own site here or find more of their spices on Keep Oakland Alive.
