Our Ground Allspice, also known as Jamaica pepper, myrtle pepper, pimenta, or pimento, is the dried unripe berry of Pimenta dioica, a midcanopy tree native to the Greater Antilles, southern Mexico, and Central America, now cultivated in many warm parts of the world. The name “allspice” was coined as early as 1621 by the English, who valued it as a spice that combined the flavour of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove.
Allspice is a very important ingredient in Caribbean and Middle Eastern cuisine. A common ingredient found in sausage preparations and curry powders. Allspice adds a wonderful flavor to meats, stews, and even barbecue sauces.
