Organic Ground Allspice
Organic Ground Allspice is derived from a small dried berry that boasts a flavor of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. We source certified organic allspice and grind it to a fine powder for our Organic Ground Allspice.

Storage & handling
Store in cool, dry place.
Organic Ground Allspice, or "Eugenia pimenta," is the pulverized form of the pea-sized berry from the evergreen pimiento tree. While it is produced in many countries throughout the world, Jamaica is the largest producer and is known for its premium quality due to a higher level of essential oils within the plant.
While it is its own unique spice, it contains flavor notes that are present in many other spices, giving it the name "allspice." It is extremely versatile, finding its way into sweet and savory cuisine.
While Europeans and people of North America primarily use it for baking, the Caribbean cuisine finds it most useful in jerk-like seasoning to balance out heat and add sweet, earthy depth.
Organic Ground Allspice adds the distinctive sweetness and aroma to this classic spice cake. Add the spice to glaze for extra flavor.
