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.

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.

Burlap & Barrel spices are the best I've used, and I've used quite a few. I recommend them highly.
I haven’t had a chance to use this yet, but the smell is warm and so nostalgic for me. Brings me back to my grandmother’s kitchen and holiday baking.
It was Delicious!
Wish the bottle had a strainer
I’m loving my spices. You can smell the freshness.
