Profoundly aromatic, the small, brownish, seed like fruits, more commonly known as berries, of the allspice tree offer a sharp piquancy followed by notes of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. In Jamaican jerk pastes and rubs for meats, allspice is the key ingredient that complements black pepper, chiles, cinnamon, garlic, lime juice, and vinegar. In fact, in much of the Middle East, allspice from the New World is now so completely integrated into the local cuisines that it is easy to presume that it is native to the region. Today it is also present in ketchups, meat marinades, pickles, rum cocktails, and spice cakes around the world.
