Allspice, Ground

Allspice, Ground

Ground allspice seasoning (also called Pimento) is made by grinding the dried unripe berries of the Pimenta dioica tree, which is also know as Jamaican pepper, and can grow to heights of 30 feet. We use ground allspice to season a variety of dishes from cookies to pasta sauces to soups. Allspice has the flavor and taste similar to a combination of equal parts of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper (which could also be use as a substitute). See the nutritional chart below.
