Made from crushed Allspice berries.
Despite its name, allspice isn't a universal blend of multiple spices. It is actually the dried unripe berry of the Pimenta dioica tree, which is indigenous to an area of the Caribbean, as well as Mexico and Central America. It was the English who gave the spice its name in 1621 since they found the dried berry's flavor to be similar to a combination of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
Allspice is a versatile spice that can be used in sweet or savory dishes but may be best known in the Caribbean as a key ingredient in Jamaican jerk seasoning, and in Mexico as part of a mole sauce recipe.
