Allspice (also known as Pimento or Jamaican pepper) is an aromatic spice that resembles a large peppercorn. Allspice orginates from Jamaica and Mexico where it is widely used in both savoury and sweet dishes. It is also commonly used throughout Europe, especially in Winter stews. Its taste is a combination of warm cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and black pepper.
This ground allspice is the easy and convenient way to use this powerful aromatic. A little goes a long way, due to the spice’s pungency, and it does give a stronger flavour than whole allspice. A level teaspoon will be sufficient for most dishes, or use less when a milder flavour is needed.
