Allspice has a unique flavour combination of pepper, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. It adds a gentle, warm flavor to cakes, desserts, preserves and fruit pies and an aromatic flavour to soups, stews and curries. It cures digestive problems and regulates blood circulation.
Allspice was so named because the flavour of the dried berry resembles a combination of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It is widely used in baking and is usually present in mincemeat and mixed pickling spice.
