Known as pimento outside the United States, allspice is recognized for its flavor, similar to a blend of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. With berries the size of large peppercorns, its color is a dark reddish-brown and is available whole or ground. Allspice berries can be added to soups, stews and pickles. A pinch of ground allspice is great for sauces, teas, jams, baked goods and pastries. Stored properly in an airtight jar, whole allspice will maintain its flavor and aroma indefinitely.
