Description

While often mistakenly believed to be a combination of different spices, allspice is a small dried berry that boasts a flavor reminiscent of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, hence the name. While it is produced in many countries throughout the world, Jamaica is the largest producer and Jamaican allspice is known for its premium quality due to a higher level of essential oils within the plant. Allspice is extremely versatile and can be used in both sweet and savory recipes, due to its multi-faceted and intense flavor. While ground allspice is used as in ingredient in baking, dried rubs, and curries, whole berries can be used in stews and soups, for pickling and brining, for wet marinades, and as an ingredient in mulled cider or wine. Ground allspice also loses its fragrance faster that the whole berry, so you can also buy it whole and grind it with a mortar and pestle when
a recipe calls for ground allspice. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
