History of Allspice
A staple of many cuisines, allspice berries earned their moniker from their distinct flavor profile, which emits notes of clove, cinnamon, cardamom and pepper. In fact, it was first brought back to Europe from the Caribbean by Columbus when he mistook the berry for that of pepper. Allspice has gained significant popularity since its trip overseas, and is now primarily cultivated in Cuba, Jamaica and Central America.
