ALLSPICE

Mixing nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon creates allspice, a delicious spice that can be used for both savoury and sweet dishes. This is where it gets its name from. It can add a distinct flavour to a variety of foods and is used in mostly South American, Jamaican, and North American dishes. Love the heat and flavour of jerk chicken? Allspice is the star ingredient in jerk seasoning.

It offers a very strong flavour, so you only need to use a tiny bit at a time.
