Allspice is the small, round berry of an evergreen tree indigenous to Central America and Jamaica.
Introduced into Europe in the 16th century, allspice is known in most languages as "Jamaica Pepper," but because its flavor and fragrance resemble several other spices mixed together, the English preferred to call it "allspice."
INDIA TREE brings you premium allspice from Jamaica.
It is characterized by a sweet, pungent taste with notes of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper.
This makes it the perfect combination as a crushed garnish on your desserts, chocolates, and finely processed for your cake spices.
Allspice makes a warm addition to foods and drinks such as pumpkin pie, scrambled eggs, chai tea, and mulled cider.
Use it to round out the flavors in marinades and chutneys and as primary ingredient in Jamaican jerk seasoning.
