Allspice Berries, Jamaican
Originally known as pimiento, and then Jamaica or Myrtle pepper, the taste of allspice is described by most as a combination of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Originating in Jamaica, allspice is used often in Caribbean cooking and is a main ingredient in our Jamaican Jerk Seasoning.
Allspice trees can grow up to forty feet high and they produce 10 to 20 pounds of dried berries per year.
The allspice grown on the island of Jamaica is widely considered to be the best quality. The whole berries are essential to pickling spice and mulling spices. Allspice is sometimes confused as a blend of spices, but it stands on its own.
