Allspice is one of the most important ingredients of Caribbean cuisine. It is also a very popular aromatic flavour for use in curry blends, to add a certain earthy aroma to it. Allspice berries have a longer shelf life than the powdered product.
The Allspice berries can be thrown in whole during cooking, then taken out afterwards, but when ground it can mixed in sparingly to add that great flavour. The quality of the food will be tasty and delicious if this spice is infused.
