Made from the dried berries of a tropical evergreen tree known as
Pimenta dioica native to Jamaica, Southern Mexico and parts of Central
America, this spice is warm and sweetly pungent with floral
undertones. Also known as pimenta, Jamaica pimenta, myrtle pepper,
allspice is not a spice blend consisting of many spices, a common
misconception because of its name and because it tastes like a
combination of cloves, juniper berries, cinnamon and pepper.
