Allspice is not a spice blend but a dried berry which can be used whole as a pickling or mulling spice. It is also available in ground form. Middle Eastern, Caribbean, Latin American and American cuisines use allspice to flavor savory dishes as well as desserts. The flavor is similar to the spices it is often paired with: a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and pepper. Try some to make Jamaican jerk chicken.
