This organic allspice from Guatemala tastes of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It smells warm and festive and all but calls out for cider and cookies. It's used extensively for baking, but also in jerk sauces, barbecue, and pickling. 

Ground allspice will lose its flavor and aroma more quickly than whole, but both work wonderfully. Use ground allspice within 6 months. Use whole allspice within 2 years.

Ground or whole.
Try a sprinkle of allspice in cider, cookies, meatloaf, stew, or in eggnog.
