Or allspice, a versatile spice that can be used in sweet or savoury dishes, best known as a key ingredient in Jamaican jerk seasoning. Whole pimento berries are small and brown, resembling peppercorns. They have a unique flavour profile that combines the tastes of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, which is why it is often called “allspice.” These berries are typically used in both sweet and savoury dishes, including marinades, stews, desserts, and pickling.
