Allspice is collected from plantations in summer, when harvesters set up camp among the pimento trees, manually cutting branches to gather the green fruit, or “berries.” Our high- quality allspice, named for its complex flavors of cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg, is from Guatemala. The berries are blanched, then dried at a high temperature, resulting in clean, brown-black berries. The seeds of the allspice will rattle when a handful is shaken, a sign of proper drying.
