Mexican Allspice is warm and sweetly pungent with floral undertones. Many food historians believe that it was the British in the early 1600’s who gave this berry the name Allspice because of the dried seed’s aroma which smells like a combination of spices; most notably cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg. We sell this spice whole because it is commonly used in both the whole and ground form. To grind all spice a simple coffee grinder will do the trick! Just make sure the grinder you decide to use is dedicated to spices only!
