Ground allspice for a warm, exotic character
Ground allspice is a spice originating from a plant from Central America and the West Indies. It is the ground, immature berry of the plant. Columbus introduced it in Europe. Despite the fact that this is already centuries ago, ground allspice is still not a commonly used spice in our kitchens. And yet, with its warm sweet aroma, you can use it so many ways. The spice smells like a combination of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. It is also known as allspice. The names Jamaica pepper or myrtle pepper are also often used. You can order it here online in a pack size of one kilo. This ground allspice that you can buy here comes from Mexico.
The taste of ground allspice
Ground allspice can best be described as a mixture of warm aromas of various spices. Apart from cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg, the flavour of pepper can be recognised to some extent. Nevertheless, both black and white pepper taste a lot sharper. So it is absolutely not the same as pepper, which some people may think. Ground allspice can therefore absolutely not be described as spicy, but as slightly sharp and sweet. The taste of allspice is mainly formed by the presence of eugenol. This is the same substance found in cloves.
How to use ground allspice
Ground allspice can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. It is very popular in the United States and the Middle East. There it is often used in meat dishes, especially stews. You can also mix it with oil, orange juice and sugar and rub your chunks of meat with it before grilling them. When it comes to vegetables, the ground spice is an excellent partner for aubergines, pumpkins and sweet potatoes. Clove, coriander, garlic and ginger are some of the herbs and spices that go well with ground allspice. You can also use this spice as a whole. Allspice whole can also be ordered online from us.
