Grains of Paradise
I feel that even if I ordered $2 million from "My Spice Sage" or other online sources, the shipping/handling would still be about $300 thousand. But they were kind enough to send me 4 oz. of Grains of Paradise as their way of saying "Thanks for letting us rip you off on the shipping."
What's the best way to use this unusual (to me) seed?

Basically anywhere you'd use black pepper but it's best where it has a chance to stand out: Salads, spice cookies or cake, fish (with lemon), eggs, vegetables. Which reminds me, Alton Brown has an Okra and tomato recipe I've been meaning to try out…
