Allspice Berry / Guatemala / 50g. / Terre Exotique
Allspice is so called as it releases flavours of pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves all together. Once ground, use it in your stocks, jams or add it to your flour when making all your home-made cakes and breads.
Allspice berries release grilled flavours of roast almond and soft fruit.
Be careful not to over heat it while cooking as this may make it bitter.
The Aztec pepper! Allspice berries are the dried fruit of the Pimenta dioica, a tree which can grow as tall as 30 metres high. This tree is originally from Mexico and the islands of Cuba, Haiti and Jamaica. Over the centuries, allspice berries were introduced and grown in Barbados, Honduras, Guatemala and Brazil. The Aztec were the first to use allspice berries as seasoning (to flavour chocolate) and for embalming.
