25 Spices To Stock Your Kitchen

 #24 Allspice

An aromatic spice with an impressive flavor profile, allspice is essentially the dry berry of the allspice tree and gets its name from its exotic taste (that seems like a strong mix of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and hints of pepper). It’s used in savory and sweet dishes including pickles, marinades, mulled drinks, chicken and Christmas pudding. Its versatile flavors make it one of the 25 best spices to start cooking with.
