How To Make Your Own Peppersoup Spice Mix

Recently i went to visit an aunt and she insisted we do a cook-off and she suggested we make pepper-soup. As we were making the dish i added my ready made pepper-soup spice to the brewing pot and she made hers from scratch and as Nigerians would say “it bursted my brain”. I watched carefully as she made it and i decided to make a replica at home, and then i figured why not share it with the awesome readers of greennews.
-6 to 8 pieces calabash Nutmeg
-8 pieces Negro pepper (Uda seeds)
-1 tablespoonful seeds of Aligator pepper (Atariko/Ulima
this makes about 3 tablespoonful pepper soup spice mix
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.
+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.
+Pour into an airtight container and store in a dry place. This
pepper soup spice mix keeps for up to a year if stored
Now you have Your Homemade Pepper soup Spice, for use
in any Nigerian Pepper soup recipe.
