Oh my goodness!
I almost couldn't wait to share this month's featured spice with you! It's Allspice! How exciting is that! I am losing sleep thinking about all the flavor combinations I could create.
Allspice is the secret ingredient in Jamaica's signature style of cooking, known as jerking. And for this reason, I feel like I may have to produce a jerk blend this month. Stay tuned... But first I'll be debuting The Irie Spice, a Jamaican all-purpose seasoning (also called Caribbean seasoning).
Rumor has it that allspice got its name because it has the flavor of so many different spices. But did you know that no single spice can substitute for Allspice?
