Allspice, Ground, Uses
Add to ground beef for Swedish meatballs. Use in spiced tea, cakes, cookies, fruit pies and French toast. Add a pinch to asparagus, chicken or tomato soups. Use in French dressing, beets, baked beans, squash and carrots.
Allspice is made from the dried berries of a tree which was originally a native of Central America and the West Indies, but is now found all over the world and particularly in warm climates. Allspice takes its name from its flavor, which is thought to resemble several other common spices (such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves) mixed together.
