Allspice is the dried berry of a beautiful evergreen tree, and one of the few classic spices indigenous to the new world. Used widely in Caribbean and Mexican cuisines, its characteristic combination of sugar and spice is a key element of jerk chicken, mole sauces and many other dishes.

Our sweet allspice has a characteristic smoky warmth, reminiscent of toasted almonds and baked fruit. It’s a perfect addition to spiced holiday desserts like pumpkin or apple pie; it adds depth and complexity to beverages like cocktails, chai masala or hot chocolate; and it even works well with meat dishes like chili, bolognese or curries.

  • Origin: Alta Verapaz, Guatemala
  • Processing: Sun-dried
  • Ingredients: Ground allspice (Pimenta dioica)
  • Tasting Notes: Baked Apple • Toasted Almond • Smoke

COOKING 

    SOURCING

    We get our sweet, rich allspice in micro-lots from the cloud forests of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. Our allspice is hand-harvested every October and November and dried. They’re grown on small plots in the cloud forests, where the altitude, high humidity and comparatively low temperatures create ideal conditions for beautiful allspice berries.

    I love this for sweet and savory dishes (especially when cooking from Yasmin Khan's Palestinian cookbook Zaitoun!).

    Delicious Flavor

    Intense, warm, and cozy. Great for oatmeal, chili, and winter baked goods. Goes nicely with the mesquite too (another absolute favorite of mine).

    Sweet Allspice

    I love the allspice. I’ve used it in a cranberry spice muffin, in a holiday spice cookie, and sprinkled on oatmeal and yogurt bowls. It’s really lovely!
