Allspice is probably something you have in your repertoire of spices, especially if you’ve ever made things like a pumpkin pie. What is Allspice, is it just a mix of spices, so you can make it yourself? Or is it its own type of spice?
Contrary to what the name implies, allspice is actually just a single spice. So there aren’t any spices from your cupboard you can mix together to make allspice. However, it is readily available at grocery stores as well as specialty Caribbean stores.
If you are really in a pinch, you can mimic allspice by combining cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg, and get a flavor somewhat similar to allspice.
