Allspice is the dried berry of the West Indian allspice tree that looks like a pea sized smooth peppercorn. Allspice, when ground up, is used in both savoury and sweet dishes including Jamaican jerk chicken, Christmas pudding, mulled drinks, marinades and pickles. Allspice tastes similar  to a combination of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and pepper so if you don’t have any to hand try using the top tip alternative.
