About this item
- QUALITY ALLSPICE - Simply Organic Allspice (Pimenta dioica) is part of the Myrtaceae family and is a powerful spice used for both cooking and baking. This spice comes from dried berries of Pimenta dioica plants that are native to Central America and Mexico. Other names for allspice include Jamaica pepper, myrtle pepper, and pimento.
- A VERSATILE SPICE - Allspice is utilized in savory and sweet dishes. A single spice that is often confused for a spice blend, allspice is a key ingredient in Caribbean food. It is known as a go-to seasoning for Jamaican dishes. It has become a useful spice for many different purposes such as soups and curries.

Use it in desserts and preserves as well as gravies and marinades, with fruits as well as meats. You can also use ground allspice in cakes and pies, breads, chutneys, custards, marmalades, sauces, soups, gravies, ketchup, marinades, and preserves. It's delicious with fruits, especially pineapple. In a pinch, you can substitute ground allspice for cloves in a recipe.

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. I use allspice in everything from pies and homemade ice cream to stews and dry-rub mixes. It pairs wonderfully with vanilla (especially ground vanilla) in desserts and has a similar flavor to bay leaves that can liven up most things involving bay.
While I'm a little skeptical of "organic" products from outside the US, this brand has had a decent reputation for quality and integrity. I worry more anyway about contaminants from processing; spices can be pretty dirty products by the time they reach us. Try not to think how many insect parts slip in during the harvesting and drying processes alone. There: now you're thinking about them, aren't you? Don't blame me–I told you not to.
the quality of the spice is very good -- superior to cheaper "Dollar" or discount spices
I needed for a recipe and Amazon shipping got this to me promptly -- thank you!!
