I usually grind my own spices, including allspice, but when I need a large amount such as a full teaspoon or more, this is much easier to use. It is fragrant and lovely, and I only use organic so for us it's the best choice.
The flavor and odor are mild and quite pleasant. Spices age rapidly after grinding and can pick up "off" flavors. Grinding your own allspice isn't practical for most people, so this is a good choice as long as you don't plan to store it more than a few months (at most). It takes a long time for spices to deteriorate to the point of inedibility; they lose their flavor long before that. This tastes at least moderately fresh compared to what you'll find in most grocery stores (not all of which is bad). I didn't detect any bitterness or unpleasant flavors. The mildness of what I receive suggests that it should be used quickly, though. Unless you use massive quantities of a spice in your cooking, its a good idea to buy smaller packages more often to keep the flavor from fading. You can always increase the amount you use, but it's not a great culinary strategy. Buy no more than you'll use in 2-3 months. Better yet, share a large package with friends.
Traditionally allspice is supposed to resemble a mixture of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. In the US we use it mostly as a "pie-spice" ingredient; it's used much more imaginatively in Jamaican cuisine (the plant is native to Jamaica). Some people find freshly ground clove a little overwhelming (anesthetizing, technically), and allspice provides a nice clove-like experience without numbing your tongue. I keep my spices as fresh as I can; when I know someone prefers a milder flavor, I often substitute allspice for clove.Read more ›
(I will be duplicating this review on the other spices I bought, I can't say enough good things about using them but at the point of number 12 or 14 I would simply be repeating myself anyways! Use and enjoy these! They are amazing!)
