I recently ordered some grains of paradise from the World Spice Merchants via The Shop here on food52. Now, what do I do with it? Thanks, everyone. ;o)

do you have a copy of Cooking for Mr. Latte? by Amanda Hesser, there are some ideas for using grains of paradise, also you will feel that they are essential in your kitchen and you purchased them in the nick of time.

I keep mine in a little peppermill like this (from Crate and Barrel) and use it freshly ground in place of pepper on lots of things. I find it a little milder than regular pepper.
