Maniguette, also known as seed of paradise or Guinea pepper, is a multifaceted African spice, capable of enriching your dishes with its unique flavors. Here are some tips to integrate it harmoniously into your kitchen:

  • In marinades : Maniguette is excellent for marinating meats and fish, giving a spicy and slightly lemony flavor that enhances the taste of food.
  • In sauces: Add it to your sauces to give them an exotic touch. It pairs particularly well with tomato sauces or creamy sauces, adding an extra dimension of flavor. It does not color so it can replace the white peppercorn.
  • For simmered dishes: It lends itself perfectly to tagines, curries or stews, slowly releasing its aromas during cooking to delicately imbue dishes with its characteristic flavor.
  • In soups: A pinch of Maniguette can transform a simple soup into a dish rich in flavor, adding a subtle, fragrant note to each spoonful.
  • With vegetables: Sprinkle it over roasted vegetables or incorporate it into vinaigrettes for a spicy salad, adding a touch of spice and liveliness to your vegetarian dishes.
  • For drinks: It contributes to the refreshing flavor and lingering aroma of pastis de Provence, adding a subtle aromatic complexity to this traditional drink.
  • As a condiment: Use it as you would pepper, adding it at the end of cooking to preserve its spicy aroma and thus delicately enhance the taste of your dishes.

To preserve the optimal quality of Maniguette, a few simple precautions should be taken:

  • Protection against humidity: It is imperative to store the handle in a dry place, protected from all humidity. Humidity can alter its flavor and encourage the formation of mold, thus affecting its quality. An airtight container is recommended to avoid contact with humidity in the air.
  • Keep away from light and heat: The handle should be kept away from direct sunlight and excessive heat. These conditions can lead to degradation of the essential oils that give the spice its unique aroma. So opt for a cool, dark place, such as a cupboard or kitchen drawer.
  • Using an airtight container: To ensure the best freshness and flavor of maniguette, store it in an airtight container, such as a glass jar or food-grade plastic container. Make sure the container seals tightly to avoid exposure to air, which could alter its flavor over time.
