The Spices of Grenada

2 1 Reviews | Add your review

If each island in the Caribbean has its own style and flavor, Grenada definitely has got the spiciest! Known as the Isle of Spice, this island nation has, for hundreds of years, made a name for itself as a producer of some of the finest spices in the world. Grenada is, in fact, the world’s second largest producer of nutmeg, but the gamut of its spice trade includes cinnamon, pimento, cloves, bay leaves, turmeric, ginger, and mace – not to mention its famous cocoa and chocolate production! Used locally as jams, jellies, and in local restaurants and culinary dishes, Grenada holds quite the epicurean interest.

Part of any visit to Grenada should include a trip into Grenada’s fabulously wealthy gardens or spice plantation. Learn how Grenada came to trade in so many spices, why the island is perfectly poised to grow so many spices, and how this long tradition has helped shape the culture of these people. Further exploration includes learning about the medicinal values of all of the island’s flora, and which fruits are turned into local liqueurs. Truly an eye-opening experience, but you guide might say Grenada is simply a tasty treat!
