 Ingredients for Homemade Nigerian Pepper Soup Spice Mix

 You'll need:

 * 1 tablespoonful seeds of Aligator pepper (Atariko/Ulima seed)

Note: some people add dried ginger roots and cubeb peppers(uziza seeds) to their mix, so feel free to add a little if you want to. 

Preparation:

*First roast the Calabash Nutmeg on a frying pan until it begins to turn dark brown and you can smell its lovely aroma. Gently peel off the outer skin and take out the seed inside. 

*Now, combine the calabash nutmeg, Negro pepper (Uda seeds) and Aligator pepper(Atariko/Ulima seeds) in a blender, and grind to a fine powder.

    1. You're welcome. Simply,Cut it open and pick out the seeds with a knife.Some of the seeds will fall out on their own, when you cut it open.

    1. You can prepare it without the aligator pepper, a lot of people only make use of calabash Nutmeg and Negro pepper (Uda seeds).
