The name for allspice is thought to come from England in the early 17th century where it was considered a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Allspice is a great example of a spice versatile enough to be used in meat preparation, pickling, drinks and dessert. When whole, allspice looks like a peppercorn and is picked when green and aged in the sun.
One of the classic uses for whole allspice is in a pickling blend. Next time you want to quick pickle carrots for a salad or wrap, add 2 carrots grated to a pot with enough apple cider vinegar to cover the carrots. Add 1 teaspoon whole allspice, 1 teaspoon whole cloves and 1 bay leaf. Let simmer for 10 minutes then strain and add carrots to any salad or wrap.
Allspice is thought to have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects.
