All about Allspice

Taste

Organic allspice has a strong aroma, and tastes like a complex earthy blend of cinnamon cloves and nutmeg.

Country of Origin
Honduras, Mexico
Food Complements
Beef, Lamb, Carrots, Chicken, Onions, Pumpkin, Squash, Sweet potatoes
Flavor Complements
chili, clove, coriander, garlic, ginger, mace, mustard, nutmeg, pepper, rosemary, thyme
Storage
To maximize freshness, store in a dark airtight container in a cool dry place. Once the spice is ground, flavor deteriorates with exposure to light, heat, air, humidity and time.
Refills
Refills arrive in air-tight plastic bags. Simply snip a corner of your bag, refill your Smith & Truslow jar, apply the new label and recycle the bag.
Cuisines

American - In the US, commercial food manufacturers use allspice to flavor ketchup, pickles and sausages.

Caribbean - A cornerstone to Caribbean cuisine, it is the premier flavor in Jamaican jerk seasoning, stews, and curries.

Mexican - You find allspice in adobos and pipians (seed-based sauces of central and southern Mexico), and in many dishes from the Yucatan peninsula.

Allspice Facts

Allspice is the dried fruit of the P. dioica tree that is native to Greater Antilles, Southern Mexico and Central America. Because of the height of the tree, 20-50 feet, allspice berries are frequently hand harvested. The green fruit of the tree is picked and then dried in the sun until it turns brown. Allspice is the only spice that is grown exclusively in the western hemisphere.

Product Testing

In response to concerns over food safety, many in the spice industry are taking measures to provide you with the information you seek. While testing has always been conducted, certificates of analysis (COAs) are now accompanying most products through the supply chain. COAs identify country of origin, certifications, best by dates, and information on product testing.

As of August 2022, Smith & Truslow spice jar labels have “best by” dates (as opposed to “packaged on” dates), and include lot numbers that correspond to the COA for the enclosed spice or herb. If you would like to review the COA for the lot we are currently selling, or for one that you have already purchased, please send an email to: [email protected]. Be sure to indicate 1) the spice name, and 2) the lot number, and we’ll respond with a PDF of the COA, as is available.
