ORGANIC ALLSPICE, whole
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Pimenta dioica/officinalis
Origin: Mexico / Honduras / Guatemala
Production: Allspice (aka Jamaican pepper, clove pepper, pimienta, or new spice) is the dried fruit of the Pimenta dioica plant. The fruits are picked when green and unripe and are traditionally dried in the sun. Once they are dried, they are brown and look similar to large, smooth peppercorns.
Qualities: Indigenous to the West Indies and Latin America, allspice was given its name based on its complex flavor combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, cloves, and juniper berries. Allspice extracts are believed to have antioxidant, antiseptic and carminative properties, and to be useful in fighting yeast and fungal infections.
Common Use: Allspice has a wide variety of uses from culinary to medicinal to applications in the perfume industry. It is commonly used as a baking spice, such as in pumpkin pie spice, and is also enjoyed in hot drinks such as hot apple cider and chai tea. It is also a key ingredient in Caribbean cuisine and in North African stews and marinades.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

When I couldn’t find organic spices elsewhere, OM had everything I needed. The packaging is beautiful, solid zip locks to keep things fresh (attractive too). So glad to have another Canadian company helping in these difficult times of COVID 19.
The dry whole allspice berries ground up into a fragrant spice just bursting with an aroma that filled the kitchen. I use the berries whole when I ferment foods. It is wonderful in my homemade Catsup recipe. If anyone desires, I'd be delighted to share the recipe for DIY Catsup I have been using for 25 yrs.
