Organic Allspice

Starting at: $2.99

Looking much like large smooth peppercorns, allspice is sometimes called Jamaican pepper. The common English name of 'allspice' comes from the fact that it was thought to combine the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. It's a useful substitute, in fact, for anyone who is allergic to cinnamon.

Allspice is widely used in Caribbean cuisine and also in middle Eastern dishes. It's a favorite addition to many sausage seasonings too. Allspice goes well in both savory and sweet recipes, and is found in many English and European cookies and small cakes.

Allspice is the dried fruit of the Pimenta tree, a moderate to tall shrubby evergreen that grows in tropical zones. For centuries, allspice was grown only in Jamaica, but is now cultivated in many tropical zones around the world. The berries are picked unripe and dried in the sun, much like black pepper.

Limited research has been done at this time, but allspice appears to share many of the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of the other plant phenols. We'll have more to add in that regard in the future.
