General information
Allspice is a complex tasting herb with a multifaceted flavor and aroma. Unlike other spices, allspice comes from the new world rather than the old one, and its uses in cooking and herbalism are still being discovered. Allspice has a mild medicinal action and is best considered as a warming aromatic spice with carminative properties.

Allspice is true to its name and blends well with most herbs and other spices.
