Allspice (Pimenta dioica). Common Names: Pimento, Jamaica Pepper.

Organic. Kosher. Allspice powder has it all — a warming, sweet, and aromatic flavor, plus potent antioxidants for whole body support. May be used to ease cold/flu symptoms, menstrual cramps, indigestion, & headaches.

While it is a singular spice, allspice got its name because its complex flavor resembles a mix of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Ancients burned it as incense or simmer pots to attract money, luck & healing.

Native to the Caribbean, Central America, and Southern Mexico, allspice is the unripe fruit of Pimenta dioica, an evergreen shrub from the Myrtaceae family. Allspice is made by picking and drying the berries. Allspice is a versatile seasoning that complements nearly all recipes — from marinades and jerk rubs to desserts and hot mulled wine. 

Allspice has a wide variety of uses in foods. It can be used in both sweet and savory recipes, and many different cultural cuisines apply it lavishly to dress their dishes. It can be added to gravy that is served alongside your holiday turkey or ham. Pork roasts benefit from a marinade that includes garlic and this spice, and Caribbean jerk recipes for beef and chicken often call for it. Spice cookies utilize it to give the sweets a bit of a kick, and it often makes its way into spiced nuts, along with sugar that caramelizes the spices around the nuts.

For Tea:  Barely boil 8 oz water, add 1 teaspoon of the loose herbs (strain herbs or leave them in the tea for a super strong brew), steep 10 to 15 minutes. Sweeten with a natural sweetener if desired. Nurture your body with 1 to 3 cups of tea a day.
