Allspice (Pimento)

4.9/5 from 10 Customers

Allspice is sometimes mistaken for a blend of spices but it is named because of its rich, sweet scent and flavour reminiscent of spices like cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Popular in the Caribbean where the best crop is grown, allspice is also an important component in sweet mixes such as mixed spice as well as savoury mixes such as baharat from the Middle East. The ground spice needs to be used relatively quickly as the flavour reduces over time.

USES: Add whole berries to pickles or marinades, particularly for seafood. Allspice is a good flavouring for meats - add a little of the ground spice to seasoning for grilled meats to bring a really delicious depth and spiciness.

The spices are all so fresh and aromatic: it made my Christmas cooking extra enjoyable to be using them, and the cakes extra delicious ( I think/hope). Everything drives so quickly too. I recommend them and send presents of their products all the time.

Perfect for the recipe I have had to find for tagine spices [Spicery no longer make a blend].

I have always found your spices to be of good quality and the kits work very well. My one grumble is that you have moved to supplying only very small quantities at a relatively much higher price. I therefore buy things I want in quantity like black pepper and chipotle elsewhere. Other spices it may not matter much. Also I have been a customer for many years and I do not recall ever receiving a discount code.
