Allspice berries are the dried, unripe fruits of a tropical evergreen tree native to Jamaica. Dark brown with an average diameter of 3mm, the berries have a flavour like a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and pepper.
Buy whole or ground in airtight packaging.
Store in airtight containers away from heat and light. Whole berries will last about 2 years, ground powder about 12 months.
Tips & Tricks:
Add whole berries to pickles and marinades, and use to make mulled wine. Ground allspice is an ingredient in mixed spice and can be used as a substitute for ground cloves when a less pungent flavour is desired.
