Allspice is the dried, unripe fruit of the Pimenta dioica tree! Native to Central America, southern Mexico, and the Greater Antilles, it is now cultivated in many different warm areas of the world. It has a wide variety of culinary uses, from sweet to savory. In the United States, it is primarily used in desserts, but can also be found in pickling spices and curry powders. You can find allspice in our shop’s Berbere spice blend!
