Native to West Africa, these ginger family flavor pods are slightly spicy, citrusy peppercorns with juniper, lavender notes. Known as “Alligator Pepper” and “Melegueta Pepper”, the herb makes for a unique black pepper alternative, with a cardamom twist that doesn’t irritate the digestion system as much as traditional pepper. Popular with brewers and pickling fans, the spice adds a complex finish to a simple salt and pepper format. They’d even been recommended, back in the day, to add to stale smelling wine in order to rekindle the peppery notes of the bottle
