All spice, in spite of its misleading name, is not a blend of many different spices but is actually the dried berry of the West Indian Allspice tree.
Its name comes from its flavour, which contains notes of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper and juniper. Visually, before they are ground, the Allspice berries look like large, smooth peppercorns. Allspice is used widely in Caribbean cooking where it is a key ingredient in dishes such as Jerk Chicken. In traditional cooking from the UK you will find it in many baking, Christmas pudding, pickle and marinade recipes.
