Allspice / Pimento Officinalis

Other names:
Jamaican Pepper, Kurundu, Myrtle Pepper, Pimenta
Allspice is the dried fruit of the Pimenta dioica plant. The fruit is picked when it is green and unripe and traditionally, dried in the sun. When dry, the fruits are brown and resemble large brown peppercorns. The whole fruits have a longer shelf life than the powdered product and produce a more aromatic product when freshly ground before use.

Allspce can be added to preparations that taste bad or are nauseating
