What Is Allspice, How Did Allspice Get its Name, and Where Does Allspice Come From?

Allspice is not a combination of spices, it is one spice with a flavor that hints at several others.

Europeans discovered allspice in Jamaica where, because its berry looks like a peppercorn, it is called Jamaica pepper.

The other spices its flavor emulates are cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
