Description: The name "allspice" is due to the fact that its flavour resembles a combination of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. It is often used in pumpkin pie. Culinary uses include flavouring for sauces, pickles, sausages and soups. Extracted oil is used for flavouring and perfumery. The wood is used for canes, umbrella handles, and to add flavour to barbecue.
