Allspice Berries are the dried, unripe berries from the Pimenta dioica, a small evergreen tree. Allspice Berries are also called allspice berries, allspice berry, spiced berries, or pimienta gorda. Allspice is often misconstrued as a spice blend, but it was given this name because its flavor evokes a combination of several sweet spices.

Mexican Allspice Berries have the largest size and darkest color relative to other allspice growing countries. They have a volatile oil content of approximately 2-3% by weight.

Allspice Berries are popular with cafes, Mexican restaurants, and brewpubs; jerky and cocktail mix manufacturers; independent spice shops; seasoning companies; distillers; and breweries. 

We also offer Ground Allspice.


Flavor Profile

Allspice Berries deliver a complex flavor reminiscent of spicy black pepper, woodsy clove and cinnamon, and brisk ginger.


How to Use

Add Allspice Berries to pickling brine and pickle onions, beets, or Pickled Blueberries. Grind them into a homemade German Style Mustard or Ketchup, or into Birria, a Mexican beef stew. For a sweet, nutty treat, use them in these Gingerspice Walnuts.

Add ground Allspice Berries to caramel for an autumn-spiced treat, toast and grind and stir into pumpkin pie, or sprinkle over rice pudding. They are a standard ingredient in seed-based sauces called pipians and in jerk seasoning. Allspice Berries pair well with habaneros, cumin, onion, tamarind, cinnamon, chocolate, cloves, pumpkin, ham, cakes, puddings, and gum.

Allspice Berries, et al. First time purchaser from Spices Inc. and I am very impressed! Items I ordered were well labeled, securely packed, and delivered very promptly, even with standard shipping. The berries have only been used in 1 recipe so far (Colombian Braised Beef), and are part of a bunch of interesting spices in that case. All I can say is we really liked that dish, and I am sure they did their part. I will be buying all my spices here from now on.

They are very aromatic. A few stems, but that s They are very aromatic. A few stems, but they shouldn't matter. What you should ask is: What did you think of the Jamaican jerk sample that we included?
