Allspice [1 oz.]


SKU: N/A Category:

Allspice, known by the Latin botanical name of Pimenta dioica, comes from the

Pimenta tree and is the unripe fruit that are dried and crafted into different

forms. Allspice is used primarily as a cooking spice. Most notably, it has

earned its reputation as one of the most important ingredients of Caribbean

cuisine. It is commonly used in jerk seasoning, pickling spices, curry powders,

and can be found in desserts and cakes. Allspice has a wide variety of uses in

foods. It can be used in both sweet and savory recipes, and many different

cultural cuisines apply it lavishly to dress their dishes. It can be added to

gravy that is served alongside your holiday turkey or ham. Pork roasts benefit

from a marinade that includes garlic and this spice, and Caribbean jerk recipes

for beef and chicken often call for it. Spice cookies utilize it to give the

sweets a bit of a kick, and it often makes its way into spiced nuts, along with

sugar that caramelizes the spices around the nuts.
